A group of Presbyterians hoping to get their denomination to pull all their fossil-fuel investments will be undertaking a 260-mile walk in June to make their point.
The Pittsburgh Presbytery recently added its name to about a dozen others urging the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to shed such investments.
The walk will take start at the denomination's headquarters in Louisville, Ky., and end in St. Louis, site of its General Assembly, which will vote on the divestment proposal.
Organizers plan worship services and teach-ins along the route.
“We agree that climate change is real and that the church needs to respond. This can be achieved through several different strategies," one participant said.
