The Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas will preach a sermon this Sunday titled Finding Peace in a Turbulent Time: The Climate Crisis and Christian Faith. Dr. Bullitt-Jonas serves as Missioner for Creation Care in Massachusetts Conference, United Church of Christ, and the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts. An Episcopal priest, author, retreat leader and climate activist, she views the climate crisis as an urgent invitation to humanity to deepen reverence for the web of life and to create a more just and sustainable society. Her new book, Rooted and Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis, co-edited with Leah Schade, will be published in November by Rowman & Littlefield. One of the first to engage in civil disobedience to draw attention to climate change, Rev. Bullitt-Jonas was arrested in 2001 with 21 other religious activists outside the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, D.C. Since then she has participated in other interfaith acts of civil disobedience to stop construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure.
