Responding to the Climate and Ecological Crisis: Green Christian On the Road Together in Edinburgh

22 October, St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh EH12 5AW

Green Christian is going to Edinburgh! If you are nearby, or visiting, join us for a day of workshops, discussion and worship to encourage our communities, build common cause for creation & inspire ambitious change.

Tea, coffee and soup provided

Please bring a packed lunch, and your own mug if you can.

The day will include…

• Joy in Enough – a chance to sample Plenty!, a discussion course challenging Christians to join in building a just economy within ecological limits. Led by Green Christian.

• On Sacred Ground – an interactive workshop, reflecting on the climate and ecological crisis, taking inspiration from Daniel Berrigan: “You not only have to take a stand but then you have to stand there.”

• Green Christian Way of Life – a workshop exploring how a four-fold framework of Prayer, Living Gently on the Earth, Public Witness and Encouragement can shape our journey together.

and…

• an environmentally themed art exhibition

Join us in hope, thoughtfulness, creativity and prayer as we make lasting connections to support faith-based climate action in Edinburgh and the wider region.
