“Be not afraid!” … so Jesus tells his followers, knowing too well how fearful they were. We too can feel overwhelmed and despairing in the face of news about extreme climate events, but we too must allow ourselves to be comforted and strengthened by Jesus’s words. If we open ourselves to receive the grace of hope and do what we can, trusting in the Lord, who knows what we can achieve!
Here are two documents that describe the many ways in which people are trying to combat climate change…. They are both available to read online and/or to download:
What Can I Do? ideas which we can implement as individuals can be found here, and
39 Ways to Save the Planet, a summary of 6 of the programmes which aired on Radio 4 recently which highlight innovative ways to combat climate change on a larger scale, can be found here
“I cannot lift 1000lbs but I can lift 1lb 1000 times.”
So share with us what things you may have done recently – both little and large – so we may take courage and inspiration from what we all, as a community in Christ, are doing.
Please use the comments box at the bottom of this page to do so; you don’t have to give your name or contact details, but doing so would help us ….
