Where is your home? Many Christians have been taught that our ‘real’ home is in heaven. Yet, the Bible actually says that God’s home will be with humanity (Revelation 21:3), and God calls us to put down roots and bear good fruit in the places where we’ve been planted. A Rocha’s 2013 Environment Resource Pack on Home provides resources for churches to celebrate their local area – the human and wildlife communities they share it with – and to seek ways to be involved in caring for their homes.
The pack can be used on Environment Sunday (the nearest Sunday to the UN’s World Environment Day, 5 June), during Time for Creation (1 September – 5 October, promoted by the World Council of Churches), or any suitable date.
The pack contains a variety of documents in Word and Adobe PDF form, along with PowerPoint presentations.
