Archbishop Makoba invites bishops to eco-bishops initiative

20 bishops from around the Anglican Communion have been invited to discussion and discernment on the climate and the environment that hopefully will lead to action. Anglican Communion News Service reports:

The Primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, the Most Revd Dr Thabo Makgoba has invited 20 bishops from around the Anglican Communion to join him in a process of discussion and discernment concerning the Communion’s witness and mission in the face of climate change and environmental degradation.

“I have asked a number of sister and brother bishops in dioceses already experiencing the impacts of climate change to join me in a process of dialogue”, said Archbishop Makgoba.acen_logo.gif

“This will involve exchanging ideas, concerns, and information about the responses we have already made in relation to climate change, and those we hope to make. Our goal will be to develop a Communion-wide strategic plan that meets the challenges ahead and builds confidence in God’s future.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
