WORLD DAY OF PRAYER 2018:

  • Risen Lord Lutheran Church 10709, 32A Avenue Northwest Edmonton, AB, T6J 2Y9 Canada (map)

Join the worldwide church as we gather together to pray for justice in Suriname & a renewed practice of stewardship of the environment.

Service Theme: "All God's Creation is Very Good!"
"The theme for the Suriname worship service urges us to evaluate how our actions affect our planet - one of our Lord's greatest creations.

The environmental crisis is also a crisis of global justice. God’s justice always meant loving and sacrificial self-giving. We, as Christians cannot be silent. We live with the hope and belief that people have the means, and increasingly, the will to focus on justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.

To recycle is to give a new use to objects, thus reducing the consumption of resources that may degrade the planet. We may use the way we do WDP activities to educate and campaign for climate justice.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE"
