Plymouth Christian Book Club

Churches have apologised for failures over past child abuse yet the scale of harm to current and future generations of children worldwide will far exceed that harm unless there is a change of heart and prompt action at every level to combat climate change and end the loss of biodiversity.

Join us to discuss the barriers to local churches responding, and ways of overcoming these barriers.

You may wish to write an eco-parable modelled on the Good Samaritan and/or write the statement a child 30 years from now might write to its church elders. We can share these during our discussion.

It is not essential to have read the texts below, extracts from which will be brought up for discussion.
