St George’s has been a great supporter of our mission partner Common Grace’s Knit For Climate Action Initiative with numerous scarves being created. In the whole campaign across Australia over 280 scarves have been knitted and returned. This represents 8,400 hours of knitting and over 11,850 meters of wool. That is enough scarves to gift one to every Federal Parliamentarian both in the House of Representatives and the Senate!
In the last weeks a terrific meeting was held with our local MP David Sharma to speak of our community’s passion for climate justice and action.
In coming weeks Common Grace is taking the scarves to Federal Parliament in Canberra to present the Knit for Climate Action scarves to key Federal Parliamentarians. June 21 is winter solstice and #ShowYourStripes Day where we will be sharing our #CommonThreads as we meet with key Parliamentarians, asking them to #WearTheScarf and take action on climate change for our #CommonHome.
Please keep the initiative in your prayers and look out for media coverage. Find out more about the whole campaign at Common Grace.
