Today I will be chatting with Rev. Kyle Meyaard-Schaap who is also Vice President of the Evangelical Environmental Network. We will be discussing what it is like being a devoted Christian who is also focused on educating, inspiring, and mobilizing other Christians to address environmental issues and climate change. Religion isn’t a topic that I have covered much on this podcast, but I’m excited to hear how Kyle ties it together with climate activism.

Have you ever looked at the effects of climate change and the apathy of so many around you and wondered, "What are we missing here?" Climate activist Kyle Meyaard-Schaap understands this feeling from personal experience. But in his years of speaking to and equipping Christians to work for climate action, he's seen the trend begin to shift. More and more young Christians are waking up to the realities of climate change. They want to help, but they're not sure how. Through stories from the field, theological and scriptural exploration, and practical advice, Meyaard-Schaap offers hope to Christians paralyzed by the scale of the crisis, helping us turn our paralysis into meaningful action. Following Jesus in a Warming World is a field guide for Christian climate action—one grounded not in a sense of guilt or drudgery, but in the joy of caring for creation.
