MRBC Climate Sunday Service 2021

The service premieres on Sunday 11th April 2021 at 10-30am and will be available for 28 days afterwards.

Please note that this service was recorded before the sad news of the death of HRH Prince Philip and so doesn’t appear as a prayer item on the video. We pray for the Royal Family at this time that they may be comforted at this time of loss.

Items for Reflection and Discussion

Read Deuteronomy 8:6-14

1. Dependence on God and respect for His laws and His creation are a fundamental part of the establishment of the Israelites in Canaan. Failure to do so was not only a moral disaster but an environmental one too. How can we as Christians bring biblical values into our own thinking and action on climate change and environmental issues?

2. The current climate crisis had been put down directly to climate change caused by human activity. Governments are trying to come together to address the problem. Are you pessimistic or optimistic about the outcome of efforts to curb global warming? On what do you base your hopes and fears? Where can the Gospel be transformative in this situation?

3. Knowing that when Jesus returns, he is going to sort out creation issues, what should our role be as God’s people today in promoting care for God’s creation?
