CEL News Email No 106: 31 Oct 2011

Today is the day world population reaches 7 billion.

There are no easy answers to the population explosion but this is an
issue we can no longer keep under the carpet. At the very least we
need to discuss the implications by talking amongst ourselves, in
study groups and in our churches.

CEL's population page has been updated
http://www.christian-ecology.org.uk/population.htm
to include four relevant emails received TODAY from CEL members on
this topic. .. And links to useful sites.

http://www.columbans.co.uk/resources/dvd-video/stations-of-the-rainforests/

Stations of the Forests. I have recommended this DVD before, and
I do again!!!. Clun Methodist Eco team in Shropshire used it in
their church at their summer weekend when they raised ove £300 for
the Rainforest Fund.

A shortened version is now on You tube:- have a look - so you can use
it for free or send off to the UK Columbans for the high
resolution UK DVD + work book - or download booklet.
http://www.columbans.co.uk/resources/dvd-video/stations-of-the-rainforests/
It features forests in the Philippines where Ft Sean McDonagh used to
work

7. 100-CHURCHES - COULD YOUR CHURCH RAISE £100 FOR RAINFOREST FUND ?

http://www.christian-ecology.org.uk/100churches

1/4 worlds Mammals are under threat of extinction.
Species are being lost at 1000 time the natural rate.
Saving rainforest =the most cost-effective way way of reducing CO2 increase

CEL urges churches to show care for God's Creation by:-
Each raising £100 to be given to one of the Rainforest Fund Charities
- and save an acre of endangered habitat
http://www.christian-ecology.org.uk/100churches

Just £100 - that is only 33 pints of lager
or two pairs of trainers - Could your church do that?

Prayer for Sunday 6 November from CEL's prayer guide:

Help us, dear Father, so to deal with the things we possess that they
may never possess us. May we so order our lifestyle that we may tread
lightly on your earth. May all the good things that you have entrusted
to us be used in your service and for the glory of your Kingdom.
