How Should We Respond to Climate Refugees? Part 2

May 3, 2019

Chris Doran

Experts propose that there will be between 200 million and 2 billion climate refugees attempting to relocate by the end of the 21st century. The vast majority will likely come from the regions where the world’s great cities are built next to ocean ports, and the tragedy and suffering that is likely to ensue demands a Christian response. The mindful and creative practice of Christian virtues like solidarity, hospitality, courage, and justice will provide hopeful ways for Christians to be the face of Christ to climate refugees wherever they might be.
