Program Overview

Sacred Air: Climate and Energy, the second program in JustFaith Ministries’ Eco-Justice Series, explores the impact of the climate crisis on God’s creation and God’s people.

In order to discern ways to restore the health of our planet and those who live on it, small groups learn about causes and effects of the climate crisis. Topics include greenhouse gases, air pollution, fossil fuels, renewable energy, the Paris Agreement, and environmental racism. Through prayer and spiritual practices, participants notice the breath of God that flows through them, granting them the life and energy to address this difficult topic with passion and resilience. Participants can expect to leave Sacred Air: Climate and Energy better equipped to address the climate crisis, both by mobilizing their communities and by making personal choices that honor God’s creation.

Each program in the eco-justice series includes eight two-hour sessions, plus an immersion experience and an optional get-to-know-you session. All programs include prayer, dialogue, active listening, weekly spiritual practices, and relationship-building. You can stop after one eight-session program, or you can offer all three programs. You do not need to take the eco-justice programs in order.
