People of faith have much to contribute to the discourse on climate change, and communications is an essential part of that mission, according to a panel convened on Jan. 12 by the Religion Communicators Council.

Meeting at the Episcopal Church Center in New York, the Rev. Pat Watkins and the Rev. Kathleen Stone, both of the United Methodist Church (UMC), spoke of recent experiences at the Paris climate summit and in creating communications resources.
