CAPTION: Martyn encourages everyone to eat local veg

Going Green for Lent

Posted: 14th February, 2018

As Lent begins, Green Champion and diocesan environment officer, Martyn Goss is encouraging us to live carefully, kindly and counter-culturally – especially with regard to the world around us. In doing this we can enhance our spiritual awareness and deepen our relationship with God.

The Diocese of Exeter is working towards becoming an Eco-diocese and is committed to the national Church of England’s Environment campaign (formerly ‘Shrinking the Footprint’) for a low carbon future, including support for Fairtrade and using local growers and suppliers.

This year our diocese has launched a voluntary Eco Plan for its staff, to encourage them to think and act more sensitively in relation to the whole of Creation.

Martyn said: “This is particularly important at a time when our human lifestyles are damaging the processes that sustain life leading to death and destruction for the most vulnerable communities and countries around the world.”
