Climate Conversation: Kenya

The Christian Reformed Church sent a dozen North Americans to Kenya last year — including me — to witness first-hand the impacts of climate change on farmers and on the poor in East Africa. Out of that venture came five short videos, each less than five minutes in length, that bring a cry for justice and action to North American churches and Christians.

On the CRC’s website, the video series is introduced with this invitation:

“For millions of subsistence farmers in Kenya, climate change is not a political debate. It is a reality in which adaptation can mean the difference between life and death. The Climate Conversation: Kenya video series is a chance to move past the white noise and to get up close and personal with the issues of climate change and environmental stewardship. It is a chance to meet people, not statistics; to hear stories, not arguments. It is an invitation to a conversation.”

 

I hope you’ll watch them all, at the CRC site or on YouTube. And then, please, join the conversation.
