The origins of the idea was a member of the congregation who felt that we should consider a ban on plastic in our community.  During Lent, the congregation was asked to give up single use plastics.  This led to the idea of approaching City Hall with a Petition.  Visions United members brought their petition to Moncton City Council on Monday May 7, 2108.

It calls for a Ban on Single Use plastic bags.  The CBC was there and filed this report: Plastic Bag Ban

Moncton City Council advised us this issue will be on the agenda of the Tri-Communities meeting (Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview) on June 13th, 2018.  Let's join our voices to let our officials know we support a ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. One small action can make a difference!

Ten Commandments to Avoid Extinction

God’s Word for Humanity today  (Click image to watch YouTube video)

  1. Stop thinking of me (God) as anything less than Reality with a personality
  2. Stop thinking of ‘divine revelation’ and ‘God’s word’ apart from evidence
  3. Stop thinking of Genesis, or your creation story, apart from Big History
  4. Stop thinking of theology apart from ecology.
  5. Stop defining ‘progress’ in short-term, human centred ways.
  6. Stop allowing the free or subsidized polluting of the commons.
  7. Stop using renewable resources faster than they can be replenished.
  8. Stop using non-renewable resources in ways that harm or rob future generations.
  9. Stop exploring for coal, oil and natural gas-keep most of it in the ground.
  10. Stop making excuses for the inexcusable gap between rich and poor.
