Cambrian Presbytery encourages you to take part in this campaign and to spread the word about this campaign. This Lenten campaign is clearly laid out. it’s a very meaningful lenten journey you can do with your congregation. As Christians, we have a responsibility to take good care of the earth, to live with respect in Creation.
A Lenten faith-in-action campaign to increase climate justice in Canada
Organize a local Give it up for the Earth! event for your community:
- Your church
- Your book club
– campaign postcards;
– Climate Change as a Matter of Faith and Justice, a backgrounder on climate change and the Christian call to respond;
– Personal and Political Action to Address Climate Change, information about the actions/policies listed on the postcard; and a recycled cotton reusable CPJ tote bag as a thank you for your participation.
You will then have a six-week window (March 1–April 13, 2017) to hold public engagement events and collect postcards. Online options for promoting engagement via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram will also be made available.
CPJ = Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) is a national organization of members inspired by faith to act for justice in Canadian public policy.
