  • Dear Friends

    Recently yet another climate change report informs us that we are walking steadily into a climate change catastrophe. With the science being beyond dispute we still see global emissions on the rise and greenhouse gases reaching new record highs.

    How do we respond? Well, if we are honest, most of us simply shrug our shoulders, carry on as if nothing is happening and amble towards the cliff edge.  We might be concerned but it feels too big a problem and that we won’t make a difference.

    I would want to argue differently. Individual actions taken together can make a difference. As a Christian, my beliefs instruct me that this is not my planet

     “The Earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it” (Psalm 24)

    and part of my job, for as long as I am on this planet, is to care for it and the inhabitants, humans and animals alike.

    As we move into Lent can I challenge you to make a step; it might be small, but a significant step to caring for this beautiful planet we call home. Can you reduce single use plastics or reduce your car use? At St Anne’s we have produced a leaflet with some suggestions that might help you. Please come and get one or ask for one.

    This Lent don't give up chocolate ... reduce carbon and make a difference.

    God bless

    Mike Gilbert, Rector of Baslow
