IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Chapel on Monday highlighted the environmental crisis of our planet. Rev Susan played an instrumental song by The 1975 which featured a speech by 16 year old Greta Thurnberg, a Swedish climate change activist. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and paralysed by fear of what will happen in this environmental crisis but we need to face it and find answers. At the root of the human problem is a lack of contentment. We think we are not enough and we do not have enough. This leads to low self-esteem which leads to greater need. Part of the answer is spiritual and we need to know that God loves us as we are. Rather than be paralysed or motivated by fear, we need to be motivated by love, how we love others, ourselves and our planet.
