The Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) is a ministry that educates, inspires, and mobilizes Christians in their effort to care for God's creation.
In week one of EEN's Christ in Creation Advent Devotional, YECA National Organizer and Spokesperson Tori Goebel reflects on hope.
Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released an updated rule to cut methane and other harmful pollutants from oil and gas operations across the U.S. The proposed standard would reduce 36 million tons of leaked methane, 9.7 million tons of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) smog-producing compounds, and 390,000 tons of hazardous air pollutants (HAP’s) such as cancer-causing benzene. These reductions will have a profound impact in defending our kids’ health and lives and will also significantly contribute to addressing the climate crisis.
Since becoming involved in EEN and now as chair of EEN’s Board, I have gained a new understanding, deepening my concern and respect for creation. The vast beauty of God’s creation is certainly a wonder to behold when we take the time away from our busy lives to stop, look, listen, and drink in its majesty. As a champion of creation care and the need for all of us living in this fragile world to care for the future of God’s creation, including addressing the climate crisis, I encourage each of you to support efforts to keep our world clean, safe, and pollution free.
