Methodists. Lent in the name of sustainability

The 2nd stage of in-depth analysis, meditation and proposals for "living Lent in a climate of change" is online

Rome (NEV), March 1,  2021 – On February 28 the second part for a sustainable Lent was released. Edited by the Methodists, this fact sheet is entitled “Waste and Climate Change. Objective 12: guaranteeing sustainable production and consumption models”. The initiative, entitled “Living Lent in a climate of change”, was launched on the occasion of this liturgical period. In particular, it is a 5-steps dossier made available to all churches and to all interested people. In each section you will find insights, biblical readings, meditations and proposals. The proposals have been developed to live Lent in the name of sustainability. In the dossier, therefore, the urgencies of climate change are associated with the objectives of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Among these objectives, for example, the following keywords emerge: food, waste, mobility, digitalisation, energy, water. This initiative is part of a broader international project towards the UN Conference on Climate Change COP26. The general theme is that of climate justice. Young Methodists are collaborating on this path throughout Italy and abroad. The project is followed and co-financed primarily by the Work for the Methodist Evangelical Churches in Italy (OPCEMI). It also sees the direct collaboration of the Globalization and Environment Commission (GLAM) of the Federation of Protestant Churches in Italy (FCEI).
