Date: Starting 7 Oct – for as long we can hold the bridge (hopefully until 19 Oct)
Location: Westminster – more details to follow soon
Time is running out to save our planet. This October Rebellion is going to be the biggest and boldest Extinction Rebellion protest yet.
Romans tells us that “creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed”. It has been over-whelming seeing Christians come alive to stand up for all the creation that our God deems “good” and embodying the sacrificial love that Jesus taught us.
Faith is going to play a pivotal role in this October Rebellion – with a “faith bridge” being dedicated to the bringing together of prayer and action. Imagine a sacred space above the water, where cars can no longer go but where there is the still mutterings of 24/7 prayer. It will be a place of prophecy and worship – a space where we can cry together and grow hope together.
THIS VISION NEEDS YOU TO STEP UP:
Christian Climate Action is a grass roots collection of people just like you, who have decided to make tackling this climate emergency a priority around their 9 to 5s and other life commitments. No coordinators are responsible for making this bridge happen.
To hold this bridge, we need to fill it with people of faith.
If you are moved by the vision of a faith bridge and what to make this little part of London on Earth as it is in Heaven, we invite you to join us in mobilising to make it a reality. Both arrestables and non-arrestables very much needed.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
- Share the vision of the faith bridge.
- Mobilise your communities and lets make this happen – XR are going to be arranging coaches to London from around the country (details coming soon), let’s get them filled.
- Book time off work for as much of the Rebellion as you can spare.
In love, rage and prayer x
