THE INJUSTICE OF CLIMATE CHANGE

"Shalom” means "integral wholeness". This should be a slogan for the climate change movement. For it means everything is connected: the peace and well-being of shalom lead to a single world order under one Creator God. All creation is interwoven to make the tapestry of all life, of which humanity is one bright thread. All [...]
