Cancun

Green Christians are being urged to pray for a successful outcome to
the United Nations Climate Change conference, taking place this
fortnight in Cancun, Mexico.

A message titled "To All Our Churches" is being circulated by
Christian Ecology Link, highlighting the interfaith prayer meeting in
Cancun itself on 30th November, and the annual London Climate March on
4th December, which is being preceded by a prayer meeting in a church
near Hyde Park Corner.

Environmental members of the faith community are asked to pass the
request on to their church and prayer leaders, to join together in
praying for the best from the international negotiations.

Ministers and pastors at local places of worship are invited to raise
the profile of the Cancun talks with their congregations, and invite
them to bring their concerns collectively to God on 5th December
during their weekly meetings.

The text of the message being circulated reads as follows :-

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

To All Our Churches

Prayers for the Planet at Cancun

This Tuesday, 30th November 2010, at 5pm, an interfaith group of
thousands will be meeting in prayer in Cancun, Mexico, asking God for
a positive, fruitful outcome to the United Nations Climate Change
talks.

Catholic Christians, Evangelical Christians, other Christian groups
and the Jewish community will gather in the Plaza de la Reforma Square
to raise their cries to Heaven for divine intervention.

The prayers will be to ask for guidance, so that mankind assumes
responsibility for the protection of Mother Earth, and to ask for
support for the delegates to the conference, so they can maintain a
peaceful atmosphere of cooperation during the talks. People are being
asked to wear white clothes when coming to pray :-

Pray. It's something most of us do at some point in our lives. From
the scared "help me !" in times of emergency, to the long meditations
of the monks, asking our "higher powers" of choice for recognition and
assistance is a very common human activity.

It's becoming very apparent that Climate Change is a real and
dangerous threat to the living conditions of many of our fellow men,
women and children, and even our own. The science is ever more
demonstrated by the evidence, and the projections are annually
confirmed. The year 2010 looks like it's going to be the hottest on
record, the last decade has been the warmest ever, and each decade of
the last century has been hotter than the one before

Extreme weather events are becoming the warning chimes of Climate
Change - records keep overtaking themselves, and as each new record is
broken, it increases the likelihood that it will become the norm in
future. We don't want the human race to end up "flooded, starving and
broke". We want a better future :-

This Saturday, 4th December 2010 at 11am in London, England, there
will be a prayer service and talk for all those about to take part in
the annual Climate Change March to demonstrate support for strong
political action on clean energy and green jobs. If you are in London,
please come along to the Church of the Annunciation, Bryanston Street
W1H 7AH, even if you do not feel you can march with the demonstrators
:-

If you cannot make this service, please remember to include the state
of the world's environment and the Climate Change negotiations in your
church meeting prayers on Sunday, 5th December 2010.

Thank you
