To make the most of the season, we have developed a fun online quiz called “The Encyclical for Dummies” that we would love you to enjoy yourself and also use as a way of contributing our Christian voice to the ‘inter webs’ today. We all know that there is a certain expectation of what “Christian issues” are and “caring for the earth” is not usually one of them! Let’s use this season as a chance to surprise people with a compelling voice that speaks of grace and justice.
Rev Belinda Groves reflects on Canberra Baptist Church's annual Blessing of the Animals for St Francis of Assisi Day and Season of Creation.
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.
