We are facing a climate crisis. Climate change is already causing suffering for peoples around the world every day. Recognizing the interdependence of all life, we are called as people of faith and conscience to heal and sustain the planet we call home.
The World is Hurting.

Imagine this: Climate activists, fully grasping the enormity of the climate crisis, urge their church to take bold financial actions to help ameliorate it. Now add Board members committed to protecting their church legally and financially. What might happen? An adversarial situation, leading to hard feelings? Or a focus on right relations and working together for ethical use of financial resources, in accordance with UU principles? For the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, Oregon (UUFC), in our climate justice work, there is sometimes a bit of the first before we achieve the latter. I’m always grateful and delighted when the conflict is respectful, right relations hold strong, and our projects turn out well. It’s never simple!
