The Green Christian Way of Life Community

Woodland path

Finding our path and walking gently together

Many spiritual communities have Rules or Ways of Life involving a set of disciplines to assist believers in living out their faith in a deeper and more structured way.

The Green Christian Way of Life  is offered to Green Christian members for whom care for God’s creation in all its forms is a fundamental outworking of their faith. The Way of Life is a calling for deeper engagement and shared encouragement. Followers of the Way are called ‘Companions’.

To hear what it is like to be a ‘Companion’ visit our ‘Way Talk‘ page and leave us your comments.

If you would like to register as a ‘Companion’ or simply find out more please contact George Dow at georgedow@greenchristian.org.uk

The Four Discipliines of the Way:

Daily prayer and devotions

Flowers

Using the Green Christian monthly prayer diary with its daily pointers for prayer. See also the database of prayer resources.

Living gently on the earth

Woodland stream

Adopting the ideas in the leaflet ‘Nine Ways to live gently on the Earth’ as an integral element. Sharing and accounting for the use of our resources, eg using the ecocell modules to help cut carbon emissions, following the LOAF principles for meals, and engaging in the Joy in Enough challenge to current economic thinking.

Public witness

Hands holding a globe

Committing to action for creation care, e.g. through active involvement in local or national projects or campaigns; giving out Green Christian leaflets; speaking out, whether to friends, at church, or in other public forums;  writing or speaking to MPs or organisations. All these and more are ways of public witness, particularly when there is some resistance.

Encouragement

Supporting fellow Companions by meeting in regionally-based pairs or larger groups.
