Faith and COP 17

Hope for tomorrow

In yesterday’s post from the COP 17 conference in Durban, South Africa, Moderator Mardi said:

“I’m praying especially for former Moderator Bill Phipps this morning, as he is half way through his two week Fast for Courage for climate justice.

As Bill said in a recent blog posting: “Endless consumption of the Earth, our only home, is no longer possible…. We need a new paradign for our economic future. Climate change needs to be addressed seriously NOW.”

Our gratitude for your witness, and our prayers are with you, Bill.

Please follow the progess of Bill’s meetings and vigils this week:
