The Anglican Consultative Council, meeting in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand, heard from many about climate change according to Anglican Communion News Service:
Members of three regions of the Anglican Communion today shared their thoughts and concerns about the impact of climate change, and how and why Anglicans should respond.
Following on from the Thursday night public forum entitled Environmental change: understanding the issues and developing a response the Friday morning session heard from several ACC members including the Rt Revd Bill Godfrey, ACC member for the Southern Cone and Bishop of Peru.
Bp Godfrey spoke about the Anglican Communion Environmental Network (ACEN) meeting in Lima, Peru in August 2011. He articulated the close connection between the first three chapters of Genesis and the communion between God and human beings in creation.
He explained that issues of water, food security and power affect his diocese in a very serious way because of the high levels of poverty in Peru. “People often ask me if I work with the poor,” he told the ACC. “My church is the poor.”
