Global Caring: Live in Harmony with God’s Creation FilmFriday 18th October 2019
Following on from the success of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales’ Global Healing films, a new film titled ‘Global Caring: Living in Harmony with God’s Creation’ has been released.
The film features Dr. Carmody Grey (Assistant Professor of Catholic Theology at Durham), Bishop John in his role as Catholic Bishop with responsibility for the environment, and a vibrant Catholic primary school in the East End of London.
Global Caring is a practical resource commissioned by the Bishops to help us engage in this ‘urgent challenge.’
You can watch the trailer for the films below.
Bishop John said:
“Even in the year since the release of Global Healing, we have seen a fast-growing interest and activity, especially among young people, in understanding the damage we have done to the earth. We are recognising the extent of the challenge. I hope that Global Caring will assist in developing that essential, practical and spiritual response that we all need to make. Let’s celebrate all that is being achieved and, with hope and determination, work to repair our common home.”
These sessions are best run as an evening event following a shared meal together or following a Sunday mass over refreshments. Both films are ideal for use in Advent or Lent, as a way of reflecting on our impact on the world and our global neighbours and how we can make positive change.
‘Global Caring’ is a free downloadable resource (DVDs are available for a small charge) with online leaders notes, posters, discussion questions and a trailer – ideal for parishes, schools and individuals.
