I refuse to forget the Christians advocating for climate action [View all]

Interfaith Room

By Brian Kaylor

(RNS) While many U.S. evangelicals applaud President Trump’s decision to pull America out of the global climate agreement, I instead think of the Christians I met at the 2015 Paris climate talks who are from nations where global warming is not a future hypothesis but a current reality.

I particularly recall my time visiting and praying with Bishop Efraim Tendero, secretary-general of the World Evangelical Alliance. A passionate advocate for climate justice and action, Tendero served on the Philippines’ official delegation to the talks. He did not recall meeting another clergy member among the 196 country delegations. Yet he remained hopeful for interfaith engagement in the push for climate justice.
