“Defiant Hope – Our Faithful Response to the Climate Crisis”
Rev. Jim Antal preaching

Jim Antal is a denominational leader, climate activist, author and public theologian. He serves as Special Advisor on Climate Justice to the General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ. He is the author of Climate Church, Climate World. From 2006-2018, Antal led the 350 UCC churches in Massachusetts as their Conference Minister and President.  Of his sermon, he says, “The climate crisis is the opportunity for which the church was born. Hope will emerge as parishioners engage some of the numerous suggestions for how they can faithfully join others – especially young people – to address the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced.” Jim and John Gibbons met in jail after both were arrested in protest of the W. Roxbury Lateral Pipeline.  Sponsored by our Environmental Justice Committee.
