Fasting for Climate Justice - A Lutheran Perspective

The LWF is calling for a fast on the first day each month until December 2014, when the 20th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 20) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will take place in Lima, Peru.

This resource supports the call to fasting by taking a look at:

  • What the initiative is and where it comes from
  • What the Lutheran faith tradition says about fasting
  • Why the LWF advocates for climate justice
