“We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its human roots, concern and affect us all.”
Pope Francis, “Laudato Si’ 14
Climate change affects our homes, our health, our heritage and our beautiful landscapes, our community centres where we meet, our sports fields where we play and our places of pilgrimage where we reflect and pray. Climate change ruins the work we do to fight poverty and to live better lives. We have already made huge progress on climate change and scientists know more than they ever have. But things are urgent now. Climate change affects living creatures and the beautiful world that God has created. So, as Christians, we have a part to play in the response. This month of September we therefore celebrate God’s planet earth, and God’s created universe.
