Last Christmas Common Grace members crowd-funded solar panels for Kirribilli House as a clean energy gift to our nation.
Several months later, we were informed that the Government would not accept the gift for various reasons that really didn’t stack up.
So we tried again, explaining how easily these objections could be overcome and yet - despite a pile of media articles reporting the story and an increasingly loud chorus of Christians and non-Christians urging them to #acceptthegift – again the Government said no.
Now… after months of exploring alternative options, we are pleased to let you know that we have finally found the PERFECT gift recipient and (even better!) they have ACCEPTED THE GIFT! Hooray!
Rosie Clare Shorter reflects on Rebecca Huntley’s new book 'How to Talk About Climate Change in a Way That Makes a Difference', encouraging us to turn our concern and anxiety about climate change into action.
Sculptor Keith Chidzey reflects on how the simple act of knitting a scarf (and building the world’s longest knitting needles) helps speak to the heart and scale of action needed to tackle climate change.
Gomeroi woman Bianca Manning reflects on the many stories the climate scarf tells, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and the need for these stories and voices to inform and lead our calls for climate justice.
Sue Pyke shares the story of three generations working together to knit their climate stripe scarf - a journey of patience, persistence and purpose that weaves together their concern for the future and hopes for climate action.
