Lamenting on climate change

You might notice the distressing tone of the song. In a way the song functions as a lament. For those who are familiar with the genres of Scripture, laments function as a conduit to stir the complacent into action. I believe that the urgency of climate action is a message that needs to continuously conveyed as solutions are readily available, what we just need now is commitment from those in power to lead the way for the enactment of these solutions. I believe that Christians should join the climate justice movement because it also is about standing up for the ‘life in full’ that we proclaim as followers of Christ, moreover I also believe that the church plays a vital role in the climate justice movement as a prophetic voice of hope in the midst of struggle for a greener and peaceful future that we hope and are working for in the present.
