Become Part of the United Methodist Creation Justice Movement

With the UM Commission on Religion & Race recently deciding to try to reach net-zero emissions by the year 2050, I have created this chart loaded with real actions we all can take in support of this goal. Please share this poster with anyone who wants to work toward a healthy and just world!

I would also like to recommend people look into becoming a UM EarthKeeper and read these creation justice books:

  • “All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis” by Ayena Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Keeble Wilkerson
  • “Climate Justice: A Call to Hope and Action” by Pat Watkins
  • “Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don’t Know You Have” by Tatiana Schlossberg
  • “Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation” by Paul Hawken“Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World” by Katharine Hayhoe
  • “The Better World Shopping Guide” (latest edition)
  • “This Is Climate Change: A Visual Guide to the Facts…See For Yourself How the Planet is Warming and What it Means For Us” by David Nelles and Christian Serrer

I would like to invite all interested in joining our new GNW / PNW Creation Justice Movement Team on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. PT via Zoom. People should be directed to contact me if they are interested.

Day of Giving 2022:
Embracing the Future

On Day of Giving, March 23rd, you can ensure that future generations of women can continue this vital legacy. Let us put faith, hope, and love into action on behalf of women, children, and youth in our communities and around the world.

Embracing the Future

Day of Giving Facebook Live Event

This year our theme is “Embracing the Future”, we will have a very special 6-hour Live Day of Giving Facebook Event. Programming was specifically chosen to cover the full breadth of our work as United Women in Faith.  Viewers will be able to watch panelist discussions, specialists on justice issues, uplifting speakers, meaningful worship, live music and much, much more!  See more information here.

We will hear from our National President and our Chief Executive Officer as they speak on “Embracing the Future”.  We will also have the opportunity to hear how your Day of Giving promotions are going throughout your conferences, answer your questions, interview faithful donors, and check-in live with those who are taking giving calls throughout the day.  Invite your friends and join us on March 23rd on Facebook at 10:00 am EST and stay with us throughout the day to experience meaningful connections to your donations at work. https://fb.me/e/Tp00GXU9

We ask that you join us in embracing the future for women, children, and youth and contribute to The Legacy Endowment Fund. Any amount is welcome before, during, and after the Day of Giving on March 23, 2022, Embrace the Future!
