This series will utilize the Exodus narratives to explore the current climate refugee crisis in the United States. Over the past 20 years the frequency of $1 billion (CPI adjusted) climate events has increased from 8.3 per year to 20 per year. The cost has increased to $177.3 billion/year. The top two home insurance companies have stopped offering coverage in some states and doubled premiums in others.
The Israelites had to leave Egypt which became deadly so that they could live. In leaving Egypt, they learned new spiritual practices that brought life to them. We too need to relearn these practices as we prepare for an uncertain future as climate change continues to cause us to move so that we can survive.
