Sunday 13 June 2021 – A wave of hope

This Sunday we are thinking of how God’s Kingdom is revealed in the beauty of creation, and how we are called to take part in building a world of love, justice and mercy.

You can download a copy of this week’s newsletter, with all of the readings:

The Wave of Hope is a venture of more than 70 organisations who form the coalition Crack the Crises, representing more than 10 million people in the UK. Through the #WaveOfHope, we are calling on world leaders to:

Crack the Covid Crisis – by sharing vaccine doses fairly and ensuring everyone everywhere has access to jabs, tests and treatments. Healthcare heroes should get the funding and equipment they need
to ensure everyone has access to health services and we are protected from future pandemics.

Crack the Injustice Crisis – by creating good, green jobs and levelling up at home and abroad. We should drop the debt, keep our aid promises and create new digital taxes. Funding is needed so that countries can resource urgent priorities such as girls’ education, unpaid care, ending violence against women and girls, preventing famine and malnutrition and investing in the local leadership of women, people of colour, disabled people and other marginalised communities.

Crack the Nature Crisis – by setting strict targets in domestic and international law to halt the decline of nature by 2030, with effective protection for at least 30% of the land and seas to help ensure the
targets are met and reduce our ecological footprint overseas through sustainable company supply chains.

Crack the Climate Crisis – by spearheading a just and green global recovery based on delivering the promised $100bn per year and more to those hit hardest, as a critical step to global climate justice – protecting 1.5 degrees through clean energy, sustainable and equitable land and water use, ending fossil fuels and reducing land use emissions
