Tim, Zane and Bill are in court this week, Janette, Ruth and Catherine members of the Prayer Circle direct action group were sentenced to 14 days have asked us to pray with them.

From February 14th to 27th, at 7a.m., 12noon, and/or 7p.m., for 30 minutes, as you are able, we ask that you hold us in your prayers, but most importantly, we ask that you pray for the suffering being caused by climate change. This is happening now. We ARE in a climate emergency. Let’s act like it and have governments take actions too. Our ‘business as usual’ stance and addiction to fossil fuels is destroying God’s beautiful creation, causing hardships and displacement around the world and here in BC too. Please also imagine the good and what life and our world can be like, and pray for this, and start living with love and care for God’s creation. Amen.
