Way of Life Community
The Green Christian Way of Life Community – 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’.
|Disciplines of the Way||Examples|
|Daily Prayer and devotions||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||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||Committing to specific current and planned action for creation care, eg through active involvement in local regional or national projects/campaigns.|
|Encouragement||Supporting fellow Companions by meeting in regionally-based pairs or larger groups.|
