The Green Movement crosses denominational barriers in Swaziland.
On Sunday 26th of June a historic service was hosted by Mbabane Parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Southern Africa, Eastern Diocese, Swaziland circuit.
The Young Green Anglicans last month were invited to a Lutheran Youth conference and they presented a Fig tree to the Lutheran Bishop challenging the church to go green.The Green Anglicans kept inviting the Lutheran Bishop and others Lutherans to their Green events. Mbabane Parish of the Lutheran Church responded to the call by God to be Earth Keepers.
On June 26, 2016 they hosted a green service and they used the Green Anglicans liturgy for world environment day under the theme “Going wild for life”. Prayers and readings were focused on the environment. Mr Nyembe a congregant of the Parish who is an environmentalist unpacked the environmental subject and Climate Change. Our Green disciple Hlophe Nozipho in the company of other Young Green Anglicans presented on how we are engaged as a Diocese on environmental issues. She then presented an Avocado tree which was planted after service.
These two Denominations (Anglicans and Lutherans joined hands in the subject of the environment and as we speak the Lutherans are Green Lutheran.
Our slogan is, “alone you can run fast but together we can run far,” we are Green Anglicans Lutherans.
