From the best-selling authors of How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take To Change A Christian?, this easy-to-use guide is structured around the Church's year and gives you the tools you need to lead your church through those next steps.
- Structured around the Church's year, making it simple and easy to use
- Explores theological themes in depth
- Provides study material on key biblical texts that you can link into services and sermons
- Practical actions and case studies to inspire you
- Includes a model environmental policy, environmental audits and a list of useful contacts to help you create a greener church.
Don't Stop at the Lights aims to resource clergy, personally, professionally and spiritually, as they lead their congregations through a changing climate. It will enable churches to take climate change seriously as a core Christian concern and to plan a programme of practical action throughout the year to reduce their carbon footprint.
'All Christians have an important role to play in developing their own environmental awareness and encouraging it in others. I am delighted that the Church of England now has this helpful guide, which will prove invaluable for those wanting to plan their own services and for all those looking to find a deeper theological understanding of our Christian concern for Creation.'
Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
