To accompany the Ash Wednesday release of the United Church of Christ’s report entitled “Breath to the People”: Sacred Air and Toxic Pollution, six environmental justice leaders in the United Church of Christ have authored reflections to help preachers connect the contents of the report to each Sunday in Lent. The overarching theme for these reflections is Journey Toward Hope.
A new liturgical resource called Living Psalms for Creation Justice complements these sermon seeds. These are Psalms in the form of words and art that are reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
