The last lap before Paris - multi-faith action on Climate Change

Most churches have become involved in relationships with other faiths, and the outcomes of these dialogues tell a very positive story, which is ignored by the secular media. It is always easier to dwell on the negatives, and to build up prejudices and develop fear of the unknown. It is hard work to create a climate of acceptance, and focus on our shared vision for a world of peace and harmony. This is being achieved very successfully at present through the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC).
Because the Paris Climate Conference begins at the end of this month the latest ARRCC e-newsletter has this focus. Please follow this link to view it in your browser. You may be able to join one of the Peoples’ Climate Marches planned for the weekend prior to the Conference in Paris.
Finally, follow this link Newsletter from the General Secretary of the National Council of Churches in Australia. Sister Elizabeth Delaney took up this role early this year and from the newsletter you can get a taste of the work she has been doing in recent months. As the first Catholic Church person in the position she has been giving inspirational leadership in a time of great ecumenical change.
With prayers for the breaking down of barriers in our divided world.
