One way we are integrating Creation Justice into our community life is through our partnership with “Blessed Tomorrow,” an ecoAmerica program by people of faith, for people of faith, offering ideas, tools and language that are familiar, compelling and effective in addressing climate change.
The organization ecoAmerica provides strategies, research, resources and tools to help national organizations become leaders on climate solutions through effective advocacy and engagement of their constituents. Together Blessed Tomorrow and ecoAmerica provide resources that put us on a path to a positive future while maintaining the unique voice of American Baptist Churches USA.
Blessed Tomorrow engages a coalition of faith leaders who seek to advocate for climate change, recognizing the moral imperative to care for God’s creation.
Working in partnership, ABCUSA and Blessed Tomorrow seek to:
- Build visible national leadership on climate solutions, institutionalizing climate action as a faith imperative within our denomination;
- Build climate literate national and community leaders, including pastors, by providing educational resources and materials;
- Engage ABC member congregations in climate solutions, including the development of Creation Justice Churches in collaboration with the Creation Justice Network; and
- Build collective support and action for climate solutions.
