WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR
The Diocese of False Bay met for their annual Youth Indaba to celebrate 16th of June. Some 300 young people filled the sports hall and there was a wonderful celebration of praise and worship, dance and song.
Rev Rachel Mash was invited to share the topic of water justice.
She reminded us that all of us became part of the family of God through Baptism. We also use water in the sacraments for Eucharist. So as Anglicans we should be at the forefront of caring for water – it is our sacred element.
Plastic is now entering the oceans and rivers at an alarming rate. By 2050 there will be more plastic then fish in the oceans. It breaks up into tiny pieces called Micro- plastic , this is now entering the food chain as it is being eaten by fish and we eat the fish.
We need to stop using single use plastic such as straws, throw away cups and plastic bags.
As Bishop Margaret says “We are the ones we have been waiting for”
