Moderator of Church of Scotland speaks on climate change at General Assembly 2014

During the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly, the new Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Moderator Rt Rev John Chalmers, used one of his morning sermons to address the theme of climate change in a sermon titled “Hands across a fragile world”:

We cannot claim to love our neighbour as we love ourselves unless we are also working to make the earth a place which offers security and sustainability for our neighbour and in today’s context that means all people without exception.
