Notes
The author, a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada, reviews the Christian, scripture-based commitment to creation and hence to environmental action. He describes the history and work of the Arocha Ecumenical Christian Conservation Centre [i.e. ARocha Christian Field Study Centre and Bird Observatory] at Cruzinha in southern Portugal which was founded by Peter Harris, a Church of England priest and member of BCMS. "The centre works with local environmental groups and is now managed by a local board. It welcomes visitors, mostly student groups coming to study the birds and plants of the Alvor estuary close to the centre. In addition to the work of Christian hospitality, the staff are actively involved in research." "[T]he Anglican Consultative Council is seeking to set up an Anglican Environmental Network. This work will be co-ordinated by the Rev. Canon Eric Beresford, Consultant for Ethics for the Anglican Consultative Council. Our hope is that the network will help Anglicans to work together and, with our ecumenical partners, to reflect something of God's love for all creation, and to promote more just and sustainable environmental practices."
