In recent time, Christians have used the 40 days in Lent to focus on their relationship with God and resolve either to give up something or to give of themselves for others in service.

 

This year, the Anglican Communion Environmental Network (ACEN), has a grater and a practically challenging recommendation for Christians for Lent: to take a carbon fast! This is “to reduce the actions which damage God’s Creation. To reduce our use of petrol, electricity, plastic, paper, water and toxins. We will take small steps for a more sustainable world, and by doing so rediscover a different relationship with God, with Creation and with one another.” This Lenten observance also offers a green, healthier and sustainable life style change which can be maintained beyond the forty days.

 

How do I take a carbon fast? The Each week has a theme with a prayer and actions for each day. From Ash Wednesday, 1 March, to Saturday 8th of April is a time of repentance, reflection and action.

The intervening Sundays between the 1st of March and the 8th of April are not counted in the 40 days because each Sunday is considered a mini-Easter.

8th Anniversary of Black Saturday

This day in 2009, bush fires ravaged through the north of country Victoria. The fires took place during extreme bushfire-weather conditions and resulted in Australia's highest ever loss of life from a bushfire. In total 173 people lost their lives and 414 people were injured. Eight years on, recovery of the loses are still going on, and the combined Churches in Kinglake are working together to make a contribution to assist in the recovery efforts.
