C of E supports day of prayer for the environment

From The Church Times-

CHURCHES in Britain on Tuesday joined in prayers dedicated to the environment.

The Church of England’s lead bishop in this area, the Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, urged Anglicans on 1 September to "stop, fast, think, and pray about the need to care for God’s good but fragile creation".

Bishop Holtam said: "Whatever the scientific, economic, and political difficulties, at root this is a spiritual problem. Prayer helps clarify what we want, and strengthens our determination for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven."
