Were you one of the thousands who participated in Hope for Creation last Sunday? Hope for Creation is an opportunity to engage as people of faith in an ongoing public conversation too long dominated by science and politics. Last weekend, Christians around Australia joined others in 50 countries to pray about the negative impact of climate change in our world.
Claire Dawson blogged on her church’s response. She writes:
Taking time to recapture a sense of God’s immense delight in all that he has made, his great and infinite care and his provision through Christ to one day mend all things has an amazing capacity to re-energise those of us who might otherwise despair in the face of the immense challenge of climate change. And now, we move forward in hopeful repentance, doing what we can to make amends and to make a difference.
We need more people like Claire, to lead the way in responsible creation care.
