Lusaka, 01 September, 2020 / 11:32 pm (ACI Africa).
At the beginning of the worldwide month-long annual event dubbed Season of Creation during which Christians renew their interaction with God the creator and His creation, Bishops in Zambia have called on the people of God in their country to bring hope and inspiration for a better future through the safeguarding of creation.
“This Season of Creation from September 1st to October 4th is a grand opportunity to wake up the world for each of us to become beacons of hope and inspiration for a better future,” the members of the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) say in their Tuesday, September 1 statement.
The global ecumenical event provides an opportunity for renewing our relationship with our Creator and all creation through repenting, repairing, and rejoicing together. This year’s event has been organized under the theme, “Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope.”
“What kind of a world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are growing up now?” They probe in their collective statement read by ZCCB Secretary General, Fr. Cleophas Lungu who continued, “Motivated by this question, I would like to invite you to participate in the Season of Creation from 1st September to 4th October 2020.”
In the 12-minute audio posted on the ZCCB Facebook page, members of ZCCB urge Christians in the Southern African nation to unite for climate justice.
