Green Christian recommends six prepared courses – which can be used for either Advent or Lent

1. This? by Susan Sayers. A new six week course that explores the full reality of where we actually are, who and what we really are, what is our ‘This’, and is God’s ‘This’ a fuller reality? If so, how does that affect the way we lovers of the Creator react to Earth Warming?

 

2. Live Lent/Say Yes to Life. the Church of England’s Lent Resource for 2020.Saying Yes to Life is the Archbishop of Canterbury's 2020 Lent book.

3. “Our Common Home, Caring for God’s Creation

An Ecumenical Study Course (Five weeks) –
This Study Guide was composed by an ecumenical group of Christians in Birmingham 2017/2018: Janet Nock, Margaret Healey Pollett, the Revd Alison Geary, Ruth Tetlow, Miriam Wilcher.
The authors are happy for people to reproduce all or parts of this study outline providing acknowledgement is given –ruthtetlow@btinternet.com
Please tell us at  Green Christian   if you use it  too.

Review: Gill Holmes, one of the group leaders in Kings Heath who led the meetings on our study guide wrote:-

The Study Guide on creation was a very user friendly resource. It consisted of general information about environmental  issues and the Christian response to the stewardship of God’s Creation. Whilst a complete resource in itself, it also allowed for further theological research alongside practical approaches to take, as Christians in God’s world, both locally and globally. Biblical passages and prayers were a good focus for self and group examination of our role and impact in the world today.

4. Operation Noah’s “Tenants of the King”   Four part study guide.
