The Diocese of Swaziland is putting a twist to this year’s Valentine’s Day. Working with Hlathikhulu Parish located in the far south of the Diocese they have started a vegetable garden put to place. With an environmental spirit shared each time they work in the new garden, they decided to bring the care for creation spirit on Valentine’s Day.
Mncedisi Masuku and his team have also agreed to have an Environmental (Green Anglicans) workshop from February 12-14 in the Parish. “We want to equip each other about waste management mainly for the beginning and establish a recycling centre in the church, have a clean-up campaign in the Hlathikhulu town. We will also establish an Eco-Club which will drive the gospel.”
On one of their work days at the garden they were joined by the Wilson family who live by care for creation.
Mcedisi being on organising team, they are still at a planning phase for the event. Everyone in the diocese is welcome to join this group of young people who are trying to make a difference on environmental issues affecting the diocese. They plan to share ideas, topics that address environmental challenges, theological materials and BIBLE studies to use on the day. Working with young people they will have a number of activities happening on the day including: Drama, poems, and musicals
