RESPONDING TO POPE FRANCIS’ CHALLENGE

livesimply prayer

1. Compassionate and loving God,
you created the world for us all to share,
a world of beauty and plenty.
Create in us a desire to live simply,
so that our lives may reflect your generosity.


2. Creator God,
You gave us responsibility for the earth,
a world of riches and delight.
Create in us a desire to live sustainably,
So that those who follow after us
May enjoy the fruits of your creation.


3. God of peace and justice,
you give us the capacity to change,
to bring about a world that mirrors your wisdom.
Create in us a desire to act in solidarity,
so that the pillars of injustice crumble
and those now crushed are set free.

Live Simply

This is inspiration from you and fellow parishioners:-

Handy for notes: Use promotional flyers that have nothing on the reverse side or the backs of used envelopes for notes. Cut down to a handy size these are ideal for ‘phone messages, shopping lists, “to do” reminders. Also, used envelopes opened carefully can often be re-used with a sticky label.

Rag bag: Not all clothing can be resold by charity shops but the shops are able to recycle material. So items bundled into a “rag bag” for the shops can be sent to be “deconstructed” with the recovered materials being used to make new products. Nothing need go to landfill!

Oh knickers!: The time may have come for those old knickers to give way to new pairs but much of the material could be cut up and used as cleaning cloths.

Live sustainably

Coffee cups: Momentum is gathering behind a campaign busting the myth that disposable coffee cups are being recycled. UK consumers buy some 2.5 billion takeaway coffees annually. At present fewer than 1 in 400 of the disposable cups is recycled. The rest go to landfill. Change.org has attracted 90,000 signatures for its campaign to introduce a 5p charge on disposable coffee cups, encouraging people instead to take reusable cups to their favoured coffee outlets.

No sting in the tail: Campaign groups are reporting that Environment Secretary, Michael Gove MP, has announced that the UK will back a permanent ban on bee-killing pesticides. At the same time, nine out of 10 of UK garden centres say they will not sell bee-harming neonicotinoid pesticides, helping to ensure our gardens are safe havens for precious bees.

In Solidarity

Hard to have missed the fact that we have a new International Development Secretary in Penny Mordaunt MP but perhaps easier to be unaware of the significant pressure she will be coming under from some quarters to end UK Overseas Aid, channelling the funds instead to UK public services. As Global Citizen points out food waste in the UK costs far more than the entire overseas aid budget. As the world’s 5th largest economy the UK can afford investment both at home and abroad. Global Citizen and Save the Children are among those organisations urging Ms Mordaunt to keep faith with the UK’s existing overseas aid commitment.
