Bring Advent Down To Earth

Christians will be bringing advent down to earth with a unique online calendar. Taking the form of ‘thought for the day’ style audio clips, the podcast calendar is designed to inform listeners about the United Nations climate change talks in Paris.

It will be launched by A Rocha UK, a Christian conservation charity based in London, and will feature clergy and conservationists carrying specially-written podcasts to promote prayer for the planet.

Churches and theology director Dr Ruth Valerio, who lives in Chichester, said, ‘We have an amazing line-up of contributors. I am excited about how this calendar can play a unique role in encouraging Christians to pray, reflect and act during the UN talks and the advent season.

‘After the “coffee cup controversy” and supermarket commercials starring a man in the moon and a clumsy cat, A Rocha UK offers Hope for the World.’
