Creating a low carbon economy needs ‘a vision of God’s kingdom on earth’. That was the message Bishop of Salisbury Rt Rev Nicholas Holtam gave to nearly 1,000 people at an ecumenical service during the Speak Up For The Love Of climate lobby in Westminster this week (17th June).
Welcoming the Pope’s encyclical on caring for creation, Bishop Nicholas (pictured right) declared it is our ‘Christian concern’ to look after the planet. He noted there is an ‘ecumenical consensus’ for the environment.
‘We need to make the transition to a low carbon economy,’ said Bishop Nicholas, who is the Church of England’s lead bishop for Environmental Affairs . ‘The science, economics and politics all point in the same direction – and we need the spirit to do it. We need to do things differently and seek to live in the ways of God. That’s about having a vision for God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.’
