CTBI Creation Time: Sustainable energy in creation - Time for prayer and action
Churches Together in Britain and Ireland have produced their resources for Creation Time 2012
"Energy is a gift from God as part of his creation but one we hardly notice... until there's a power cut! But one in five people in the world has no access at all to electricity and two in five rely on burning anything from wood to animal excrement for cooking and heating.
2012 is the UN Year of Sustainable Energy for All, with a target of giving the whole world reliable, clean energy by 2030. This is not just a subject for the developing world. Here we need to make radical changes to move away from electricity generated by climate-change causing and increasingly expensive fossil fuels to renewable options, together with greater efficiency and lower consumption.
As Christians we need to be aware of the issues and know what we can do as individuals and as churches both to care for the planet and to care for the poor who lack energy. This is why CTBI has made Sustainable Energy its theme for the 2012 Creation Time season, and we hope you will make use of our materials in churches and groups and as individuals.
Resources for this year are available for free download www.ctbi.org.uk/604/, including sermon notes, prayers of intercession, group study and liturgical material.
The lectionary sermon notes, prayers of intercession and harvest celebration will also be available shortly in Welsh.
The prayers of intercession and harvest celebration will be available shortly in Irish.
A range of other liturgical material can be found in Additional Resources 2010 www.ctbi.org.uk/501/#additional. An updated version of this will be available in August 2012"
