Discussion questions

  1. Do you see the coronavirus pandemic and climate change as an equal threat to our health, the planet and those in poverty?
  2. What biblical reasons can you think of as to why the church should act – which includes prayer and preaching – on climate change? (For reference, see: Psalm 24:1; Psalm 115:16; Psalm 145:9; Matthew 10:29–31; Psalm 72:12; Philippians 2:4.)
  3. Why do you think tackling climate change is not a priority for many Christians and do you think you can do more to change that?
  4. What do you imagine it is like for the poorest people in the world who are already facing the consequences of climate change on a daily basis?
