WOMEN NURTURING MOTHER EARTH FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
The Anglican Women’s Fellowship of Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Phillipi, Nyanga East, Langa & Mfuleni, gathered at St Mary Magdalene Church in Gugulethu for their conference to revive the spirit of our members and to strengthen our fellowship in our parishes. The conference was held from Friday 16 October till Sunday 18 October 2015 at St Mary Magdalene Anglican church in Gugulethu.
Rev Rachel Mash from Green Anglicans addressed the group, looking first at the impact of our actions on the world, affecting the generations to come. Our Great Granddaughters will be joining AWF and that piece of plastic will still be sitting here on God’s Earth.
We looked at John 3:16 that God so loved the Earth, not just the people on it , but the whole of the Earth.
And we looked at practical ways to make a difference, such as putting a two liter filled with water in your cistern to save water every time you flush . Great interest was shown in the ‘wonder bag” a way of cooking using very little energy just to get the food to boiling point. After that it is put into the wonder bag and cooks itself!! Food ready once you get home for work!
At work and at home, we can make a difference and nurture Mother Earth
