"The earth is the Lord’s" declares the psalmist (Psalm 24:1)
It is God’s creation, not ours to do with as we please.
Care for creation is at the heart of the Eco-Congregation movement. KPC is part of Eco-Congregation Scotland. This is a movement of Scottish church congregations, of all denominations, committed to addressing environmental issues through life and mission. It was founded in 2001 and became a registered charity in 2010. Both the Bible and Christian tradition have some vital and profound insights into care of what the world terms the ‘environment’ but which the Church understands as God’s creation. Approaching environmental issues through Christian ‘lenses’ offers valuable ethical and spiritual dimensions that may contribute to environmental work both within and outside the church. It is also an approach filled with hope.
Our Eco-Group (which also includes the work of Fairtrade) is coordinated by Jim Smith, with Karena Jarvie leading on Fairtrade. For more information or to find out ways to support or become involved, speak to Jim or Karena directly or via the church office.
Many congratulations to all those hard work and commitment was recognised by Eco-Congregation Scotland in the awarding of a Silver Award.
