Progressive Christian Social Action

Following Jesus into the heart of the struggle for a transformed world.

The Reverend Sharon Delgado is a United Methodist minister, author, speaker, and activist.  She preaches, speaks, leads workshops, and writes on globalization, climate change, economic and environmental justice, and peacemaking, while pointing toward hope and action for a transformed world.

If you will be in Nevada County on November 5, join Sharon to celebrate the release of her new book:  Love in a Time of Climate Change:  Honoring Creation, Establishing Justice,  a progressive Christian approach to climate change that respects other faiths and philosophies and takes climate science seriously. 

A book release event with Sharon will be held from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. at the Open Book at 671 Maltman Drive in Grass Valley.  Santa Cruz singer/songwriter and artist Russell Brutsché will display his painting, featured on the cover of the book, and will open with a few songs, followed by a book presentation and reading, a Q & A session, and book signing and socializing.

Love in a Time of Climate Change has been endorsed by theologians, activists, and scientists, including founder Bill McKibben, climate scientist Michael Mann, theologian Catherine Keller, Interfaith Power and Light founder the Rev. Sally Bingham, and many others.  Find out more and see initial endorsements here.

  1. Hi, Sharon, was interested in reading your entry on Goodbooks, as I share many of your same interests. I am a retired clergyperson in the Anglican Church of Canada. I write fiction and am looking at doing more nonfiction. Hope to get more in touch with like-minded folk out there, so here I am. Very interesting books you are reading.

    Best wishes on your reading and writing.
