John 12:19 The Pharisees then said to one another, “You see, you can do nothing. Look, the world has gone after him!”
There is a hopelessness that can come from looking at our planet’s climate crisis. Can we do nothing? Has the world chased too far after the false god of fossil fuels? Or are we looking at too small a picture? The arc of history can be confusing, and it can be hard to know if we are zooming out far enough to comprehend what God is doing. As we engage in God’s work, may we be granted the wisdom to discern our part in that great arc toward redemption.
MOVING FORWARD: Visit your local farmers’ market this weekend for some great late-summer produce!
