The Green Saints an environmental group from All Saints Landsowne celebrated Earth Hour on the 28th of March. The evening service had a great turn out with visitors from other parishes. They celebrated with poetry, songs accompanied by the guitar, breathing and laughter exercises and education about natural cleaning products vs harmful chemicals. Wonder Bags kept the healthy soup warm and the candles in jam jars gave a comforting soft light. “What a lovely warm fellowship evening. We look forward to more green evening where we learn about greening our bodies, homes and the environment.” The Green Saint’s mission is to create an awareness to be green conscious, to have green evenings where knowledge is shared and to raise funds for green initiatives at the church and community.

It is often difficult to judge how our actions and their impact on the environment are likely to affect others. What is clear is that we are the only species with the power to destroy the earth. Birds and insects have no such power, nor does any other mammal. And yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, we also have the capacity to protect it. I believe we have an urgent responsibility to do so.
