British Musicians Want Worship Songs About Climate Change

British musicians launched a project encouraging budding songwriters to compose worship songs about climate change.

The group, Resound Worship, wants to include the chosen songs in church services to inspire Christians to take care of the environment, reports Premier.

We’ve been really aware that we don’t have a lot to say in worship language, especially contemporary worship language in church, so we thought we’d better get onto it and try to write a collection of new songs which cover these kind of themes. —Joel Payne, coordinator of Resound Worship

Joel Payne, a songwriter and coordinator of Resound Worship, said people must realize that the climate change is a pressing issue everyone must address now. Church music reflects what is important to its members and he said there is a need to produce more songs about the planet.

“We’ve been really aware that we don’t have a lot to say in worship language, especially contemporary worship language in church, so we thought we’d better get onto it and try to write a collection of new songs which cover these kind of themes,” he explained.

For those interested in joining the project, Resound Worship suggests using the Bible for inspiration. The Bible has many verses about the wonders of God’s creation and it is a good starting point for songwriters.

Interestingly, a recent poll found that the majority of Britons believe that the climate change is more important than Brexit.

Meantime, a new church-led research showed that 46% of high-carbon-emitting companies in the UK assessed by the Transition Pathway Initiative do not consider climate change in their business decision, reports Church Times.

Adam Matthews, co-chair of TPI, warned that, “The clock is ticking on irreversible climate change…Investors need to adopt an emergency footing, otherwise the window to secure the change we need will be gone.”

He urged investors to use their influence to make sure that companies reduce their carbon emissions according to the standard set by the Paris climate agreement.
