Interfaith Alliance introduces Meatless Monday

Chef Debra Chase teaches free Cooking Demos of vegetarian and Vegan dishes.  Yum!

Yolo Interfaith Alliance for climate Justice has introduced Interfaith Meatless Monday to most of its 11 member congregations. Joining Meatless Monday is One Simple Thing we can do to address climate change.

It’s a small act that multiplied by many people and many meatless days has a big impact. (more…)

Praying and transformation in a time of Climate Change

We hold hands in a spirit of hope.

The 40,000 world leaders from 190 countries are gathered in Paris to reach an agreement to curb carbon emissions and to find ways to support vulnerable countries and communities in adapting to the impacts of climate change that are happening right now. Our prayers are needed to strengthen their resolve.

Meanwhile, we can begin a revolution by changing ourselves. (more…)

Helpful Resources for the Paris Climate Talks

President Obama has made a commitment to curbing U.S. ghg emissions, but is less willing to negotiate on funds to help countries already suffering from climate disruption.

The Paris Climate Talks make people all around the globe stop and think about this earth – our one home – and our relationship to it. Clearly we are out of sync, and our use, and sometimes abuse, of the planet is causing serious repercussions for the health of the planet and for all its life forms, including ourselves.

Here are some resources to remind you of what we have, to alert yourself to some of the problems and to keep you informed on the Paris negotiations.
