Can you believe it? A south Texas evangelical Christian minister is in bed with a climate scientist. Literally, they are in bed together. He’s the minister, and she’s the scientist. They are married. Their sacred bond is helping Christians in the Lubbock Bible Church on the South Plains of Texas wrestle with the spiritual and political issues of climate change.
Climate change has hit south Texas harder than other parts of the U.S., with devastating droughts and still-smoldering forest fires. Once the fires die and the drought continues, south Texas will experience “desertification.”
Let’s get back to the kumbaya-singing, hand-holding couple who spiritually guide parishioners through the maze of science and toward the glory of God.
