Living Well in God’s world – join the Bishops’ Lent Challenge
This year, Bishop Peter and Bishop Ruth are focusing on care for the environment for our Lent Challenge to parishes.
With almost daily news of the damage that humankind is inflicting on the natural world, it seems timely to remind ourselves that as Christians we are called to be good stewards of the world that God has entrusted to us. Our lives should reflect the Good News of Jesus to all of creation, as summed up in the 5thMark of Mission ‘To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.’
Although, there is much ‘green’ advice available, many churchgoers are not aware of how much our faith has to say about caring for creation. This Lent we hope to help people make those connections, and to be encouraged to take small steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
At St George's, each week during Lent we will be looking at the Theme, Reading, Prayer and choosing one of the challenges set so do join us in this Bishops' Challenge and remind ourselves that we need to care for this beautiful world that God has created.
