In The Bible we read ..... 'and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God'
This is a verse that's often quoted by Christian Aid and similar charities, who share a vision for 'a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty'
But what about the 'walking humbly' part of that Bible verse?
What does it mean to 'walk humbly' with God whilst doing justice and loving kindness?
That's the question Christian Aid is exploring in a series of podcasts called WALKING HUMBLY - the podcasts are intended to carry us thoughtfully through Lent to Easter - and beyond.
You can find them on the Christian Aid website - www.christianaid.org.uk
and I'm very grateful to the production team who have made the material available to me, so that I could include a small part in today's programme - it's my hope that you will find the material interesting and stimulating, and as we listen together, we might be refreshed and re-energised as we continue the long journey to climate justice.
Don't forget to subscribe to the Walk Humbly podcast series via the Christian Aid website, so you will get alerts when new episodes are added.
Today we're climbing a mountain in the company of David Coleman, full-time chaplain to Ecocongregations Scotland. Judith MacLeod, Programme Coordinator for Ecocongregations Scotland brings a Bible reading about a very different mountain, then David returns with some thoughts on his mountain climb, the Bible reading - and the challenge for us!
He also explains the work of Ecocongregations Scotland.
Ruth Rice returns with another letter from her A-Z Alphabet of Wellbeing (the title of her latest book) - Ruth is the founder of Renew Wellbeing providing cafe-style spaces where it's OK to not be OK .....and is passionate about helping us to care for our mental health. Every week in Lent, she joins us with another idea to help us find our own peace of mind and wholeness .....thoughts we might use to spring clean our mental wellbeing - and maybe even reach Easter embracing a new life!
You can find Ruth's short videos to accompany each letter of the alphabet by going to www.ruthricebooks.online
There's some beautiful music to celebrate St Patrick's Day and our usual notice board.
Suggestions for hymns to be included in future programmes, and items for the notice board (on both At Your Service and Sundown) can be emailed to me - email@example.com
