I am writing this short blog whilst travelling by train to the Green Christian Conference in Bristol.
It is a busy time for important Conferences with The Tablet’s 175th Anniversary Conference in Durham having taken place earlier in the week from Monday to Wednesday.
These two conferences are very important to CCA and indeed at The Tablet event we presented a short paper on Animal Welfare issues by our Theological Adviser, Dr Deborah Jones and the CCA connection was also re-inforced by the attendance of our President, Archbishop McMahon who as well as attending the Conference presided over one of the communal religious services for the Conference delegates and guests.
I am looking forward to the Green Christian event today to meet old friends, hopefully make new ones and crucially highlight Animal Welfare issues and the importance of Pope Francis Encyclical letter,Laudato Si to the Conference and keep it uppermost in peoples minds when they discuss and think deeply about environmental and other issues.
A full review of both Conferences will appear in a future edition of the ARK.
