Would Jesus join Extinction Rebellion?
Christian Climate Action Training Day
Free! But we are limited on numbers so you do need to book a ticket please!
Christian Climate Action’s involvement in the Extinction Rebellion (XR) Easter uprising has made 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, are looking to Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) to help us in following Jesus Christ.
Come and find out:
– More about CCA and why we love XR
– Why we think following Jesus requires radical action
– What NVDA involves
– How you can get involved
– Why and how to tell your story
– If you like us!
No prior experience is expected, though even if you are an old hand at locking on and praying on the streets, this is a great opportunity to get to know people. 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.
Please bring if you can:
– Lunch to share
– Your own mug
– Faith, hope and/or love
