A Network for those who care for God’s creation
Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide have long been concerned with environmental issues. From extreme weather to food shortages all of us are affected. Guided by the fifth Mark of Mission members of the Anglican Communion Environment Network strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth.
Water is a gift. Water is life.
During Lent we remember Jesus’ time in the wilderness facing challenge and temptation and reflect on God’s purpose in our own lives.
Our resources for Lent 2017 – a Carbon Fast and a series of Reflections on the Water of Life for the five Sundays of Lent and Palm Sunday – invite direct engagement with water justice issues and small steps, reducing actions that damage Creation.Resources
On and around 22 March 2017, the UN’s World Water Day, cathedrals and churches around the world will lift their voices to draw attention to our obligation to care for God’s sustaining gift of water in all its forms. Anglican cathedrals in Cape Town, London and Melbourne, and Trinity Church Wall Street in New York have partnered to produce and gather a raft of resources.Resources
