Lament for the Bushfires
#CarbonFast For Lent
For Christians, Lent is the time when we remember the challenges and temptation which Jesus experienced during 40 days in the wilderness, and God’s purpose in our lives. In Australia we are experiencing unprecedented bushfires, droughts and floods from the impacts of our climate changing. We can challenge ourselves to take a Carbon fast, taking small actions to reduce our own carbon footprint, to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew life of this earth.

WE WILL RISE is a new 46-day devotional study which focuses on building hope out of loss following the aftermath of the Australian bushfires. The booklet offers daily devotionals and prayers, encouraging people to turn to Jesus for hope, healing, comfort and courage. Part profits from the sale of the booklet will be donated between the SA Government Bushfire Relief fund and the Uniting Church SA Synod Bushfire Relief fund.
