The Tri-Cities Climate Strike is scheduled to take place in Grand Haven’s Central Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20. Held as one of hundreds of demonstrations globally, the local event is being organized by St. John’s Episcopal Church of Grand Haven.
“In the very first stories of our sacred texts of Scripture, we are commanded by God to be stewards of creation,” said the Rev. Dr. Jared Cramer, rector of St. John’s. “Instead, we have abused creation, plundered national resources, and lived our lives in such a way that climate change is now an undeniable reality, one that will have profound negative impact upon our children and that is already having significant impact around the world, particularly upon the poor and struggling.”
