Dear future generations,

First and foremost, I hope this letter finds you well. I must sincerely apologize for my own, as well as many others, inactivity in regards to climate change. I sit here in late September of 2018 having witnessed some of the most horrific weather events in history which have occurred over the last few years.

From droughts to floods to fires to sinking nations I have sat by idly for years knowing the destruction we are wreaking on mother earth. Well, enough is enough! I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm. I will be a loud advocate and work to the fullest extent of my abilities to make sure we preserve our beautiful planet. I know it is not too late!

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
