As we prepare for the Season of Creation, we look around our world and see what UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called the ‘era of global boiling’. Lamenting the destruction and asking God’s forgiveness for our part in it, we pray for brothers and sisters – and for all of creation – affected by the heat.
Some progress has been made this month to reduce emissions from shipping, and we give thanks to that. We also raise before God three key areas that will be negotiated at the climate talks in Dubai this November. And, acutely aware of the pressures on politicians in some countries, we pray for progress rather than polarisation and partisanship in national climate responses. Join us!
