Climate Justice Session Three – What is required?
Climate Justice Session Three – What is required?
Session three looks at the different ways you can get involved in the fight for climate justice.

The film shows five of the many campaign actions that have been taken by Christian Aid campaigners over the years on the journey to climate justice. With the United Nations climate change talks in Glasgow in November this year (2021) we have an incredible opportunity to ‘do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8)’ together. Discuss together what actions you already take for climate justice.

The Passage: Micah 6: 1-8

Read the passage twice – have someone read it aloud and then individually in silence.

Hear what the Lord says:
   Rise, plead your case before the mountains,
   and let the hills hear your voice.
2 Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the Lord,
   and you enduring foundations of the earth;
for the Lord has a controversy with his people,
   and he will contend with Israel.
3 ‘O my people, what have I done to you?
   In what have I wearied you? Answer me!
4 For I brought you up from the land of Egypt,
   and redeemed you from the house of slavery;
and I sent before you Moses,
   Aaron, and Miriam.
5 O my people, remember now what King Balak of Moab devised,
   what Balaam son of Beor answered him,
and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal,
   that you may know the saving acts of the Lord.’

6 ‘With what shall I come before the Lord,
   and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings,
   with calves a year old?
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
   with tens of thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
   the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?’
8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
   and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
   and to walk humbly with your God?
