Celebrate Easter & Climate Justice Month with a Love that Never Dies

A picture of yellow tulips in the background with text overlayed, reading "May we live this Climate Justice Month awake to impossible dreams and a love that never dies for Earth and all her children. - Rev. Peggy Clarke"Easter is the morning we awaken to a world we hadn’t imagined, a world filled with possibilities so grand they’ve propelled generations of hope over millennia. It’s a day of impossible dreams, the perfect day to declare our faith in a world renewed. In our current climate crisis – an almost incomprehensible emergency requiring a massive redesigning of all of our systems – the Easter story brings us the resurrection of hope. When death and destruction seem to have won, when the Great Empire of Power and Profit has killed the harbinger of healing and generosity, we experience terrific defeat, retreating to our homes with friends where we wring our hands and tear our clothing. But on Easter morning we are reminded that love cannot die and that hope is alive, again.

May we live this Climate Justice Month awake to impossible dreams and a love that never dies for Earth and all her children.
