- Have you found that it is possible to live a different way – a greener way – during lockdown and do you intend to continue some of these more climate-friendly ways of living post-pandemic?
- Katharine says that when it comes to recovering from the pandemic and to fixing climate change, what we most lack is a vision of a better future. Were you challenged by this and in what ways?
- Do you think the better future Katharine speaks of is possible eg cities full of trees and moist, clean air? What do you think it would take to get us to that point where we all live as good stewards of the land and care for each other?
- What are the things that you value most in life? What are those values based on? Can you think of new ways to live differently that are more consistent with your values?
Action to take
We can all choose to live in a different way and to have a vision of a better future. Check out some of these Tearfund resources to get ideas for how you as a Christian and/or a church can play a role in building a better and greener world.
