On 28th of September we will have an event about “Faiths for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty”, in partnership with Greenfaith.
When it comes to the reality of our environmental crisis, change is urgently needed at all levels of society. The science is clear: our world is warming because of human activity, giving rise to drought, famine, devastating wildfires, extreme weather events, a rise in sea levels and the displacement of millions of people.
This is an exciting transformation that is accelerating across the world. However, if we remain invested in polluting, climate-destroying fossil fuels, this change cannot take place.
In today’s Gospel from Luke 15, we have 2 brothers. And as is sometimes the case in families, they don’t seem to have much of a relationship with each other. Yet both of them can proclaim “Our Father”.
Today is the first Sunday in the Season of Creation, the time set aside by the church to both celebrate the gift of all God’s creation in our Common Home and reflect on our role in caring for it.
