Florida pastor Joel Hunter is launching an initiative that empowers multifaith leaders to lead and engage others on climate solutions.
The initiative, called Blessed Tomorrow, brings together more than 20 evangelical, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim and Jewish leaders who are committed to working with their congregations and communities in response to climate change.
“Blessed Tomorrow empowers faith leaders from across religious traditions to both steward God’s creation and inspire their congregations, communities and other leaders to do the same,” a statement says.
“Faith leaders and their communities have been at the forefront of moving America forward throughout our nation’s history. From abolition to human rights, we have been there to answer our call to care for all of God’s creation. Blessed Tomorrow builds on that tradition by bringing together a diverse group of leaders from across the country who are committed to making an impact on one of the greatest moral imperatives of our time—climate change,” says Hunter, senior pastor of Northland, a Church Distributed, in Central Florida.
The Blessed Tomorrow website provides resources that leaders can use to inspire and empower their congregations and communities. It also allows congregations to create a “Path to Positive” plan, which helps congregations be better stewards of God’s creation.
