Event description

Description

The fifth in a series of regional days with Green Christian and local communities to deepen ecological discipleship, mobilise for change, and build common cause for creation.

Including sessions on:

  • The Green Christian Way of Life, which provides a framework of 4 disciplines – Prayer, Living Gently on the Earth, Public Witness and Encouragement – by means of a dispersed Community of Companions. It has been described as the spiritual “heartbeat” of Green Christian. There will be an opportunity to discover new resources and share our experiences of using the disciplines as an aid to our ongoing spiritual journeys.
  • Joy in Enough, presenting a vision for a society dedicated to human flourishing and the common good rather than the constant pursuit of more. Recognising the value and limits of the natural world, we aim to harness the imagination of people in churches and beyond. We will use one of the modules in a learning guide we are preparing for church groups to explore these issues.

The draft programme is as follows:

10.30 Coffee

11.00 Welcome and prayer

11.10 Contemplative Ecology: Re-imagining our relationship with nature. An introductory talk from Rev Richard Clarkson, Environmental Officer for the Diocese of Lichfield.

11.30 Way of Life - an interactive exploration of the 4 disciplines of ecological discipleship

1.00 Lunch

2.00 Joy in Enough - a taster of Cafe Conversation to discuss impact of economic system, and give people tools to critique the economic forces that are driving environmental destruction

3.30 Next steps nationally and locally in Shropshire and the region

4.10 Closing worship

4.30 Depart


The day is open to all who are interested in discovering how we might better pray, live, witness and support each other in this time of crisis.

Please bring a contribution towards a bring-and-share lunch and your own mug if you can.

Cost free – but donations on the day welcome.

Booking is essential as space is limited. Please book before the end of Friday 14th June.

A similar “Green Christian On the Road Together” regional day will be held on 14th Sept in Manchester
