Caring for God's Creation
When God saw all he had created, he called it “very good”. Our world is wonderful, but in lots of ways it’s become spoilt and broken. In recent years a number of local Christians haven taken up the cause of Fairtrade - an initiative which seeks trade justice, decent working conditions and fair terms for farmers and workers in the developing world. In the last two years, thanks to their efforts, Lindfield Village and All Saints Church have become accredited Fairtrade groups.
As we've become more aware of the urgency to care for our planet and its climate various new initiatives have begun. Look out for events in the church and wider community which seek to raise awareness about climate change and sustainable living - this is the result of Christians putting their faith into action to love their neighbours - “Love does no harm to a neighbour” - Romans 13:10.
'Caring for God's Creation' is an initiative at All Saints to help put our faith into action in this important area which affects all of our lives.
