A new project across the Diocese asks you to consider your dreams, hopes and prayers for the future of our planet. Find out more in this edition of Called to Action: Small steps to save the planet.
Research shows that freeing up our imagination to create a vision of a better future, inspires and enables action, actually making positive outcomes far more likely. *
The Dreams, Hopes and Prayers project is an invitation to:
- Imagine what our communities could be like, if we took big steps to make things better. Maybe imagine a child in our future community. Where would they play? What might they see, hear, smell, taste or learn?
- Draw pictures or write words within the circle, to capture your dreams, hopes and prayers.
- Gather together the ‘dream catcher’ circles as part of a Climate Sunday service. A display could help people think beyond today’s news and develop a community vision. Use the project to help with planning and as a starting point for action.
- Please share copies of your circles with the Diocese, so we can build a shared vision in our area. Email them to us
Everyone is welcome to access further information and the circle template on the project's page on the diocesan website.
