Today, climate degradation is already hitting people in poverty the hardest.
85% of the world’s poor are rural, and they rely on their land for food and income. Around the world, natural disasters like floods, droughts, and fires are damaging their crops. More people are going hungry and even being displaced from their homes.
As followers of Jesus, we must be bold in confronting the things that harm the poor. We must also care for God's creation. Taking action on climate change does both.
At Tearfund, we partner with churches to train farmers to grow flourishing crops, so they can feed their families and earn sustainable incomes even in a changing climate.
What does God's word say about our relationship to Creation? Start our YouVersion devotional plan today to find out.
Join us in prayer for creation, our role as caretakers, the human impact of climate change, and the role of our policy makers.
