Storm of Hope
Storm of Hope is our Annual Brochure (four sides of A4), produced each February. It is a good introduction to Green Christian. It promotes the current concerns of Green Christian and its members. You can read it by clicking on the relevant link lower down. If you would like several paper copies for your church or an event, please contact Green Christian.
We use the phrase ‘Storm of Hope’ to describe a form of discipleship that enables us to respond to the cry of the wounded Earth.
‘Storm’ refers to the sorrow we feel in our hearts at the signs of the Earth’s demise and most especially stormy consequences we face as a result changing our lives to tread more lightly on the planet, thus living against the flow of the dominant culture.
‘Hope’ is the spiritual energy that empowers us to choose to engage in the discipline of faith, resistance and worship that allow us to safely feel the pain of ecological devastation and yet sustain our passion for activism.
‘Storm of Hope’ is a ‘way of being’ that enables us to grieve but still remain sufficiently angry, humble and hopeful to be true to our calling as faithful Earthkeepers.
Christ, alpha, omega
avatar of hope
whose heart in spite of all
hopes on in spite of us
hopes on for us, in spite of us –
rain, rain on us
your wildfire storm of hope.
From That Intransitive Being by Daniel Berrigan
