Green Christian Magazine editor sets off for Paris by bike

I can write something a bit longer when I get back
Today I’m off to Paris by bike (well cycling the French bit, then back on Eurostar). The demonstration before the COP21 is cancelled but I’m going along with 10 others as a pilgrimage to show our concern about climate change and to pray for a binding and effective agreement amongst the nations gathered there. It’s very cold now since I agreed to do this in a balmy September but I have my thermal gear packed and in the light of recent events, that’s a side issue. We also go in solidarity with all those whose lives have been and are being devastated by terrorism.
You might like to read some recent blog posts of Caroline (who got me interested in doing this). She’s been highly organised and got a letter and petition to hand in; I haven’t managed that but please do look at her suggestions of what you could do instead:
Editor: We’ll be thinking of you – cycling–
and Caroline of Climate Stewards
and Euan McPhee and Dave Barton and John Fogarty
and Jean Leston (walking)
and Paul Kelly Eurostarring..
Other Green Christian members – do tell me if you are going.
