‘We are called to be gentle with the earth’ – Bishop Donald takes part in House of Lords development debate

“We are called to be gentle with the earth, kind to it in the same way that we are called to be kind and gentle with one another.”

Bishop Donald said these words in a House of Lords debate yesterday (Monday 4th November). The House was discussing how the UK can support poorer countries in development which does not harm the environment.

Bishop Donald gave examples from Israel and Rwanda, and called for small-scale projects to be supported as well as larger ones.
