Green Epistle to the Indian Churches :
“Remember your Creator and Creation” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
World Environmental Day (June 5, 2017)
From time to time and as and when necessary Churches have been responding to Ecological Catastrophes through various ministerial and diaconal interventions.

The summer this year has reached a decade high, resulting in drought in several parts of the county, while the monsoon season is expected to result in floods that would swallow agricultural fields. Such extreme weather conditions are not at all favourable to our country, but yet, we have to go through the experience of the same.
