Creation, Climate and You: A Guide for Small Group Conversations

2020, 11 pp
This guide is designed for use by hosts and facilitators who want to guide a small group through a basic, entry-level conversation about climate change in a faith context. This conversation, “Creation, Climate and You”1 is proposed for people who have rarely, if ever, talked about climate change in a group setting before. It focuses on gently surfacing people’s emotions and underlying thoughts about climate change while offering a bit of information on climate science and inviting people to imagine how the world could live up to their dreams.

This is an opportunity for you as a leader - a host or facilitator - to start making change right in your own community. This structured discussion offers you a simple way to open the conversation and keep people attentive to an issue that is important to you. You don’t need to be a climate change expert to lead; everything you need is right here in this guide. This is a concrete way for you to help address climate change. You can make a difference. Whether you lead one Faithful Climate Conversation or many, all of us in For the Love of Creation are grateful for your leadership and look forward to hearing from you on the feedback form.
