Our Beautiful World!
Our world is very beautiful in all its rich diversity of living things, and ecosystems which sustain interdependent life from the simplest to the most complex of organisms. As Christians we believe it is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God's Creation.
There is now a huge groundswell of belief in the Church and the wider Community about the urgency of the need to address in faith, practice and mission, the scientifically accepted reality of climate change and the dangers it poses to all life on earth.
How can our actions make a difference?
Inevitably we feel deeply inadequate in the face of global events and their links to major changes in the environment. How can our actions make a difference we ask with all sincerity? Yet we know that only by starting at an individual level with some fundamental changes in our life style can we hope to contribute to the legacy of an inhabitable planet for future generations of people and the animal kingdom.
