No New Posts Welcome to the Box Pew Climate Forum

The purpose of the Box Pew Climate Forum is to facilitate information sharing and to organize and act in response to the climate emergency. We are a group of members of King's Chapel in Boston who started meeting together early in 2020. Believer or doubter, seeker or skeptic, we're all on this planet together. May we do our utmost to preserve it for future generations.

No New Posts Take Action for Electoral Justice

Out of a feeling of urgency about taking concrete and timely action to steward climate solutions, we have created an Electoral Justice Board. This Board is intended as a “meeting place” for King’s Chapel parishioners and others who want to join in taking action during the remainder of the 2020 election cycle to promote electoral justice so that every vote matters and is counted. We support non-partisan organizations dedicated to getting out the vote.

No New Posts Environmental Justice and Stewardship Across Faiths

Exploration of what a diversity of faith groups are thinking and doing about human effects on the environment on a global scale (Anthropocene) and on a local scale (oneness), especially with respect to the least privileged in society. How does faith motivate individuals in these intentional communities, and how does their collaborative pursuit of environmental stewardship influence their faith?
