With the unanimous support of our SCC Church Council and our UCC National Climate Justice Council, we are sharing with you a Resolution to support the Green New Deal. It will be voted on during our NCNCC Annual Meeting in June, with plans to send it to the UCC General Synod. The text of this Resolution can be found here
Climate Change is a compelling moral and faith issue. The Green New Deal Resolution calls on multiple levels of our denomination to both advocate and take concrete action within and beyond our congregations for the sake of all Creation. You can read the FAQ’s for the General Synod Resolution here
I am proud that our “brave little” church has an opportunity to be a proponent in something that matters so much. I urge you to read this resolution before church this Sunday.
We will have an opportunity to express our opinions about this after worship on Sunday, April 28th, and to discuss it after refreshments. Please let me know right away if you would be interested in representing our congregation at the NCNCC Annual Meeting to vote on this resolution.
Grace and peace,
Pastor Laurie, Skyline’s Green Team and Church Council!
