“Climate change is the most urgent moral issue of our day.” Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and chair of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network
Sunday will hopefully see a gathering of millions of people across the world come out in solidarity and witness ahead of the UN COP21 talks which start in Paris the next day.
Join others from the Brighton & Hove Centre for Spirituality and travel up to London together. Meet at the train barriers at Brighton station at 9.30am, Sunday ready to get 9.47am train. We plan to attend the Inter-Faith Gathering at Westminster Synagogue at 11.45am before joining the March. Book your (free) place for the Inter-Faith gathering through Eventbrite: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/interfaith-gathering-peoples-march-for-climate-tickets-19314319650
At the Centre of Spirituality we have had a number of events and talks recently linked to Climate Change and Christian Spirituality, most recently Revd Peter Owen-Jones. A number of us heard former Anglican Archbishop Rowan Williams speak in Firle, Sussex on Climate Change and Christianity. I wrote a piece reflecting on Archbishop Rowan’s talk (link below): http://allsaintshove.org/climate-change-and-christians/
Hope you will join this global gathering on Sunday as a global act of witness and solidarity, calling on world leaders to make significant breakthroughs in the UN talks.
