Let’s talk about the climate emergency – Harvest of the land

September 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As Scotland comes into the spotlight hosting COP 26, due in November 2021, it becomes imperative that Scotland’s churches join the conversation and take action on the Climate Emergency.

One of the most powerful ways we can encourage change is in talking, listening and telling our stories. Eco Congregation Scotland has produced a pack of resources to help congregations begin a series of  awareness raising conversations about the Climate Emergency and to encourage everyone to take action.

Throughout September, which is Creation Time, the focus has been on a “Harvest of the land”. 

As the seasons slowly change crops ripen and are gathered in. Fruits swell on trees and bushes, ready for picking. The smell of jam cooking fills kitchens. Food is stored away in readiness for winter by animals and humans alike.

We rely on the sunshine and the rain to ripen and water the crops. Yet the weather also has the power to destroy crops, high winds flatten wheat, plants in parched soils wither but flooding may wash away crops of winter vegetables, leading to shortages of specific foods. In other countries lack of food leads to severe famines and humanitarian crises.

In Scotland the average household wastes throws away about £460 of food a year, much of it still edible.

Join us on Zoom, to talk and reflect on thoughts about a “harvest of the land”.
