Sunday Song

This week's Sunday Song is a classic bit of Greenwashing. The advertising industry has successful purchased/been granted the rights to assign a song one would more align with environmentalism and, infact, used it to promote a car. Disgraceful. Luckily for us there are people out there willing to go beyond the corperate spin, make a real challenge to society and ensure changes for the better are brought in. So, after a week of reports about the Climate Camp 2008 a few links to provide further engagement in Environmental Issues Student Christian Movement - This year have been examining the theme of 'Small World' and have produced some fantastic morning and evening Prayer resources. Christian Ecology Link - A quality central resource. Eco-Congregation - A fantastic (free) course to convert your church (building and congregat into taking the issue of environmentalism seriously. - A must read! What Does the Bible Say About Climate Change? - A group study booklet, produced by the Methodist Relief and Development Fund, which challenges the reader to read, reflect and take action. Operation Noah - A Christian Coalition created to highlight the specific need for a Christian response to climate change and what that response might entail. Take Care Y'All John
