President Obama has announced today that he will attend the Copenhagen climate negotiations beginning in less than two weeks. Click hereto read the press release. This is definitely something to be thankful for. As Tyler has mentioned in her most recent blog post, members of the faith community are concerned that the actions taken in Copenhagen will not be enough to curb the impacts of climate change already being felt by communities around the world. Hopefully the presence of President Obama and members of his cabinet will help to foster a dialogue that will take us further toward reaching our faithful goal of protecting God’s people and God’s Creation.
Thousands of people from the faith community signed Count Down to Copenhagen postcards, delivered to President and members of the senate earlier this month, asking the President to go to Copenhagen. Our voices have been heard. Now we must continue to pray that God will work through our leaders to allow something good to come from Copenhagen.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
