Tell Your Story!
Be it media, church newsletter, or with the wider UCC, share your story! Read more…
In recognition of the urgent need to address the intertwined crisis of climate and inequality, the UCC Council for Climate Justice has defined the next ten years as a kairos window of divine opportunity in which people of faith are called to an all-out mobilization of their gifts and resources. Over the course of ten weeks, the council will offer a weekly suggested action for how churches and institutions can mobilize during this critical period. Here is the tenth and final suggested action:
10) Throughout the process of mobilizing, tell your story!
- Make what you do visible at your church whether it is a bulletin board, a newsletter, or a website. Bold action inspires and attracts. Let visitors and the broader community know that your church is acting upon its values in meaningful ways.
- Share your plans and successes with local media. Use press releases to share news of your Kairos Plan and the accomplishments achieved in implementing it.
- Share what you are doing with the broader UCC. Conference and association newsletters can be one outlet. On a regular basis, the UCC’s Pollinator newsletter shares the best practices of local congregations. Moreover, UCC staff writers regularly cover everything from church participation in climate strikes to solar installations.
