“Finding ourselves in a world of beauty and mystery,
of living things, diverse and interdependent,
of complex patterns of growth and evolution,
of subatomic particles and cosmic swirls,
we sing of God the Creator,
the Maker and Source of all that is.”
- from ‘A Song of Faith: A Statement of Faith of the United Church of Canada’, 2006.

We live in an age of consequences. The consequences of living beyond our means and reckless abandonment of the very planet that has given us the air we breath, the food we eat, the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the rain that provides life and growth to plants and animals and all living things.
Since climate change affects us all, as Christians we are called to ‘love our neighbours’, and to care for the planet. We are also called to seek God grace and love as we begin to realise that climate change gives us an opportunity to bring reconciliation and hope to both humanity and our planet. It’s a big challenge, and perhaps you feel overwhelmed but it is one we can do if we put our minds and hearts to it.
On the menu to the left are short articles intended is to inform, challenge and empower each of us so that we have the tools to begin (or continue) to “care for creation”. Our attitudes and decisions matter. It is not hopeless. It is not only for businesses and governments to handle, but also for us to know that God is with us as we respond. Yes! “God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, and love and a sound mind (self-discipline)”. (2 Timothy 1:7)
