Archbishop Emeritus Dr Winston Halapua, former Bishop of Polynesia, reflects on the impacts of climate change in the Pacific and how Anglicans there are living out the Fifth Mark of Mission: ‘to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and renew and sustain the life of the earth’.
“We need to blow a conche to alert the world of the danger, not only to ourselves but to whole planet earth. We need to call for a working together to care for our common home. We face greater crisis and need to face them together. We need to raise prophetic voices. We have the opportunity to forward a new movement of caring more deeply for God’s creation, of celebrating its wonders and of discovering our common humanity.”
