17th October 2021
Dear Friends I visited Plymouth today. The sun shone, the water was blue and calm. Looking to the right to Mount Edgcumbe and to the left to Jennycliff all looked lush and green. How easy to look at the beauty and believe that all is well with the world. However, when we open a newspaper, switch on the radio or TV we know that the truth is very different. We have all become aware that all is far from well and the earth is in great distress. From 31st October to 12th November the COP26* summit in Glasgow will bring together leaders of nations, people from over 200 countries, environmental experts, faith leaders and all manner of other parties intent on making decisions that will accelerate the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. In this week’s Circuit Service the Rev’d Richard Wilde, in the sermon, calls on us not only to review the way we live in response to Climate Change but also asks us to pray for COP26. If you would like to join with others to pray for good outcomes from the COP26 summit I invite you to join us at Stratford Methodist Church on 23rd October for one or more of the half hour prayer sessions at a Prayer Vigil led by Stratford Churches Together. The vigil will comprise six half hour prayer sessions from 10 am – 1 pm.
*(COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, together with our partners Italy, in Glasgow, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it's called COP26.)
