Earthing Faith at St Nicholas, Earley

Last Thursday I attended an Earthing Faith gathering at St Nicholas Church, Earley, to give a five minute report on our experiences as an Ecocongregation and the resulting connections we made (RCEL, GREN etc). Drawing together highlights, skimming the blog and some APCM reports was a much more positive experience than I'd expected, remembering just what had been done so far. We've very much put green issues on the back burner lately, and yet there are many positives that have remained - still far too many bikes for the bike racks, still most commonly vegetarian shared meals, continuing to mark Creation Time and so on. It was great to be at green church event in Reading again, catching up with old friends but also finding lots of new faces, churches newly getting involved. I was very interested to learn about Oakwood Forest Church which sounds a wonderful way of doing church in Reading. (This image is from the cloisters at Mont Saint-Michel).
