To my dismay, Baildon is still the only Eco-congregation in the Bradford North Circuit.
The global temperature rise of more than .75 degrees C in the last forty years, and the increasing violence of storms and floods are due to the rise in carbon-dioxide (CO2) which we humans cause to be emitted. They are leading to suffering and death to God’s children and God’s creatures.
Christians need to act immediately to reduce our own and our country’s CO2 emissions. And help is at hand. A new scheme has been launched called ‘Eco Church’. St Paul’s Cathedral London has joined; York Minster is about to do so. Go to Ecochurch.arocha.org.uk to see the details.
I hope we may soon be an ‘Eco circuit’, a cluster of Eco churches, to show our deep concern for God’s creation. And to act.
John A, Baildon
