Roundup: Occupy and Advent, What would Jesus buy?, cutting carbon, Christmas Island, Christmas challenge
What would the festive season be like without the bells and whistles?
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging all countries to cut carbon emissions following the recent agreement on a timeline to set a new course to combat climate change.
Christmas Island is a tiny speck in the Indian Ocean, yet it will seem vast compared to some of the tight spaces Rev Christine Senini worked in. And she won’t have to sleep in a bunk bed.
The Christian challenge of Christmas is this: justice is what happens when all receive a fair share of God’s world and only such distributive justice can establish peace on earth.
Our Advent devotion empowers us to live in the world as agents of God’s love and justice, even as it helps us get ready to celebrate God’s entry into our world through the birth of Christ.
