Eco Church round-up | September

https://ecochurch.arocha.org.uk/
The Green Christian organisation exists to share Green insights with Christians and to offer Christian insights to the wider Green movement. Their website – greenchristian.org.uk – has lots of information on their vision and campaigns since their inception in 1981.

One of the ongoing projects is the GC Rainforest fund; the aim is for 100 churches to raise £100 each for vital habitat-saving charities (for example World Land Trust  https://www.worldlandtrust.org/ or Cool Earth https://www.coolearth.org/). Their website shows progress towards this; it would be great if St Mary’s Finedon could participate.

David W. Orr – Ecological Literacy: Educating Our Children for a Sustainable World.

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”

A representative from the BCN Wildlife Trust visited the churchyard on 10 August regarding the ‘Greening our Churchyards’ scheme. A report will be submitted in due course.
