This Friday 25th September, St James Anglican Church hosts a conversation that explores how people of faith think about mutuality and responsibility in an age of climate crisis.
Toowoomba priest, Reverend Deborah Bird, will be joined by Peter Catt, the Dean of St John’s Cathedral Brisbane and other guests for a conversation to be recorded for ‘On the Way’ Podcast as a special episode for the Global Day of Climate Action.
This Global Day of Climate Action falls within this year’s Carnival of Flowers. As thousands of visitors celebrate Toowoomba’s natural beauty and blooming gardens many are increasingly conscious that it takes the health of natural systems – good soil, clean water and stable climate to make such displays possible.
The Carnival of Flowers also falls within the church’s celebration of the Season of Creation, a period of reflecting upon human impacts and stewardship of the earth.
While there is often contention about whether climate change is an issue of faith, Reverend Deborah Bird maintains that the tradition says this earth is for every generation, and protection of what gives life is among the most sacred of Christian responsibilities.
This free event will occur 6pm this Friday September 25th at St James Anglican Church, corner of Mort and Russell Streets Toowoomba.
