Anglicans to join Catholics, Orthodox in prayer for creation
August 31, 2015
The Church of England’s lead bishop for the environment has called upon Anglicans to join Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in praying for the care of creation on September 1.
“It will do us all good to stop, fast, think and pray about the need to care for God's good but fragile creation,” said Rt. Rev. Nicholas Holtam. “We live at a time when human activity has caused a dramatic reduction in the earth’s biodiversity and when people are causing climate change through our profligate use of fossil fuels.”
