Faith For The Future
Bishop Nolan of Galloway has spoken out often about the need for all of us to protect our common home.
"As a global Church we witness the voices from our partner dioceses and parishes in other parts of the world – in Brazil, Bangladesh, Fiji, and South Sudan to name a few – their stories of drought and hunger, extreme flooding, rising sea levels polluting ground water wells and more frequent cyclones and hurricanes washing away lives, homes and livelihoods – alerting us to how fragile life and survival can be from one moment to the next, for some of the world’s most vulnerable communities."
We praise you, Lord our God, for the gift of life. We praise you, for the beauty and diversity of created things. We praise you, for the rich resources of the earth and seas. We praise you, for entrusting to humanity the care of our common home. We praise you, for the opportunity to change our wasteful ways. We praise you, for your boundless compassion and forgiveness. We praise you, Lord our God, by our actions, in responding to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. We praise you, Lord our God, Father, Son, and Spirit. Amen.
