Creation Care at ACP

Earth Day Conversation – 22 April 2022

 The Three S’s of Climate Change: Simple, Serious, and Solvable
Featuring A. Scott Denning

Scott Denning is Monfort Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. He is author of over 100 publications in peer-reviewed climate literature, a former editor of the Journal of Climate, and founding Science Chair of the North American Carbon Program. He has served on advisory panels for NASA, NOAA, the US Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation. 

In an engaging and easy-to-understand style, Scott Denning explains 1. The reasons for climate change, which are simple and easy to demonstrate; 2. Why it's also extremely serious the more we acknowledge the massive consequences of even a few degrees average warming; and finally, 3. How solvable this crisis is. But do we have the moral courage to act? 

Join us for this talk and Q&A to commemorate Earth Day. Sponsored by ACP’s Creation Care Task Force. Good for the entire family. 

Lent: Give It Up for Creation!

Lent is traditionally a time of prayer, fasting and giving to the poor. This year, ACP is doing it with creation in mind. The world is facing a climate crisis, which sometheologians say is primarily a spiritual and moral crisis. What can we as Christians do in the face of destruction? Even committing to do one thing is “Good Enough,” the theme of ACP’s Lenten journey this year. Join us in pledging to accept one or more of the six challenges here, one for each week of Lent. Or do all six for all of Lent! This Lenten challenge is organized by the Creation Care Task Force, which ACP’s Council established in December 2021 to uphold the church’s core value of creation care.

ACP establishes Creation Care task force

This team, created in December 2021, will explore one of the ACP’s stated core values: creation care. The Creation Care Task Force will work closely with Council leaders, who asked the team first to calculate the church’s carbon footprint. This is an indicator of ACP’s impact on the climate, which is undergoing profound change. A carbon footprint, according to Britannica, is the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with all the activities of a person or other entity (e.g., building, corporation, country, etc.).

Climate Sunday 2021

On 31 October 2021, ACP held its first Climate Sunday (see bulletin here), as part of the biggest ecumenical Christian movement for climate justice, counting about 2,000 churches from 40 denominations in the U.K. calling on governments to act on climate.  See photos here.

You’ll notice prayer boats made by ACP kids, an activity sponsored by the Young Christian Climate Network in a pilgrimage for climate justice. Furthermore, ACP broadened the movement to invite especially faith communities in Paris and our sister churches in the AFCU, creating the European Interfaith Campaign for Creation, which aims to respond to the climate crisis as people of God.

Plus, ACP hosted a Zoom talk on 2 November 2021, featuring ACP members Monica Bassett and Lionel Montoliu, about their new life in an ecovillage in Dordogne and founders of 0.6 Planet. See the replay below. And, ACP’s movie group watched and discussed the biopic ‘‘I am Greta,’’ as part of its picks for October.
