Climate Change - 'Shrug Culture' challenged by Ash Wednesday Declaration
Leaders representing the UK's mainstream churches will tomorrow
(Wed 22 Feb) call for repentance over the prevailing
'shrug-culture' towards climate change.
Rt Hon Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury; Rt Rev Richard Chartres, Bishop of London; Most Rev Barry Morgan, Archbishop of Wales; Cardinal Keith O'Brien, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh and leaders of the Methodist, Baptist and URC churches are among those signing Operation Noah's Ash Wednesday Declaration.
A short public service of prayer and dedication to launch the Declaration will be held at St Mary-Le-Bow, Cheapside, London (5pm), and at numerous churches around the country.
