In the news this week…

Pope Francis stirs the pot again – this time on Climate Change. He’s planning to release an encyclical this summer on the environment.  Does it matter when the Pontiff wades into these waters?  Will he manage to rise above the usual squabbles and make this a moral issue?

Here’s The Guardian’s take -http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/dec/27/pope-francis-edict-climate-change-us-rightwing

And Bloomberg -http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-01/the-pope-is-speaking-out-on-climate-change-here-s-why-it-matters

And the Nepal earthquake.  I know a few of us are not TV watchers and we may have managed to avoid seeing images of this disaster.  This gets us back to the problem of these crises that happen across the world.

How does a Christian respond?

What are we called to do?
