For Such a Time as This

USPG For Such a Time as ThisAutumn 2021 we are using the USPG For Such a Time as This materials across services and study groups.

The world is in crisis; Creation is groaning. People and the Earth have been crying out for many years. But for too long, many people - particularly those in the global North - have chosen not to listen, instead remaining complicit in destruction and continuing to increase inequalities. In such a time as this, what have Christians got to offer?  This is a thought provoking series of topics exploring ecological justice.

If you would like a copy of the booklet, please ask Marion or download from the USPG website.
