Statement from Eco-Congregation Scotland chairperson Richard Murray:
It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of Queen Elizabeth II after a reign of 70 years in which she has exemplified the virtues of service, compassion and leadership.
Her death comes at a particularly difficult time for our nation and the world. We have lost her reassuring presence and commitment to live her life to the highest of standards. Queen Elizabeth was a regular church goer. Church was a part of her family life. Her attendances at major church events and regular worship were a feature of her reign. Although we mourn the loss of our late Queen, as we look at our changing world, it is important that as Christians we should take this moment to reflect deeply on the changes that are taking place as a consequence of our misuse of fossil carbon and our failure to care responsibly for God’s creation.
Charles III, when Prince of Wales, often spoke powerfully on environmental issues and on the imperative to act. He spoke movingly to the recent COP26 in Glasgow. At a time of doubt and uncertainty, of real fear about the future, this is something we are called to make clear to everyone, and offer the hope that the changes we need to make in our world will open up a sustainable future. We need to ask ourselves what are we are being called to do at this time.
