A couple of years ago, prompted by the War on Waste program on the ABC, some of us got together to talk about why we are interested in our responsibility for the environment as Christians and as concerned individuals. We know that we reflect a wider concern within our congregation. Our church life profile from the recent survey tells us that there is not one of us who thinks that, as Christians, we do not have a responsibility to care for the environment. While 74% of us said we are active, 26% said that they were not.
Our conversation was wide ranging and lively. We have so many ideas. Each of us has taken away one thing to research for the next meeting. The aim is to help each member of the congregation find ways that we can act to lessen the impact our lifestyle has on the environment. We will also be looking at ways that Campbelltown Uniting can take steps to recycle and make well informed purchases.
