The Episcopal Diocese of New YorkThe Rev. Jeff Golliher, priest at St. John’s Memorial, in Ellenville, also represents the Anglican Communion at the United Nations on environmental issues. He is presenting a paper on the climate crisis at the 16th Meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council now being held in Lusaka, Zambia.Among his recommendations to the Communion, the world needs us: "...the crisis is not only about levels of carbon and methane. The world needs us to be the church in ways that express the power of the Holy Spirit at an unprecedented time. This involves more than advocacy and activism. It includes deeper levels of pastoral guidance, innovative visions of financial and environmental stewardship, and strategic planning on every level of the church based on creative ways of organizing ourselves with spiritual and ecological vision. The world is desperately looking for faith in God, confidence in our institutions to carry us through this crisis, and truthfulness about the realities of life."The Communion is called, he urges, to create sustainable congregations and places of worship, including in our sacramental life. Renewable, green energy is necessary for the sacredness of church buildings. "Policymakers also understand that energy is inextricably linked to water and food. For us, in our congregations, this relates, first and foremost, to the water of Holy Baptism and the shared meal of Holy Eucharist. In other words, survival needs – water, food, and energy -- are already interwoven in our sacramental life. The water in the baptism font actually is the water of life. Do we know from where the water in our baptismal fonts comes? Do we know if it is polluted? What does that tell us about the well being of our communities?"And, he encourages, the Communion's diversity is a source of strength: "Because we inhabit diverse worlds in an ecological sense, it is difficult to make very specific recommendations to the Anglican Communion as a whole…The irony is that to strengthen this diversity — building up the sustainability of the congregations, communities and ecosystems where we live — will also strengthen our unity as the Anglican Communion…[W]e have great learn from each other by asking very basic and compassionate questions of each other: Have you discovered how to solve a particular climate problem where you live? Have you tried a particular solution or approach? Is there some way that we can help, or help each other?”2 weeks ago   ·  1
