Christian Climate Action (CCA) has been busy recently, taking part in actions as part of the Extinction Rebellion (XR). We have lots of new people interested in our work. If you’re one of them, this is your chance to get find out more and get involved.
Followers of Jesus Christ are taught to imitate Christ and so are often given training and encouragement to feed the hungry, heal the sick and forgive our enemies. Seldom are we trained or encouraged to follow Jesus Christ in the activities that won the attention of the authorities, got him arrested, and then saw him crucified. His early followers shared in this aspect of his life but we generally do not. Some of us, who are aware of the contemporary signs of the times, aware of the behaviours of the principalities and powers in the world and aware of our own complicity in these processes, wonder what role Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) should have in our following of Jesus Christ.
Come and find out:
- More about CCA
- Why we do what we do
- Why we’re currently involved in the XR
- What NVDA involves
- How you can get involved
No prior experience is expected. Interest and participation in this training day commits you to no action but it is hoped that it will be of use to you as you consider the issues around NVDA and how it relates to your own Christian discipleship.
