Faith Leaders in Ohio Praise Pope Francis’ Historic Encyclical
Leaders of diverse religious groups agree: Addressing climate change is a moral imperative
“At Ohioans for Sustainable Change, we know first-hand that climate change is a moral issue not only for Catholics, but for people of all major faith traditions —and that people of all faiths are busy putting belief into action. Congregations across Ohio have been hard at work practicing what the Pope is now preaching on climate action, embracing energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate-friendly grounds at their houses of worship and in their own homes. Ohioans for Sustainable Change calls us all to take bold steps to move forward into the clean energy era so we can find real solutions for Ohioans,” said Sara Ward, Director of Ohioans for Sustainable Change
Ohioans for Sustainable Change (OFSC ) mission is to empower a religious response to climate change and to promote energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy. OFSC focuses on tangible results in religious communities—putting faith into action. OFSC is organized around education, advocacy, and stewardship initiatives to engage the faith community in a religious response to climate change.
