Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) National Pastoral Coordinator has urged the Church in Zambia to use the language that appeals to the people when popularising Laudato Si, Pope Francis’ encyclical on the care of our environment. Fr. Charles Odira Kwanya has said that every clergy and other pastoral agents should use the language that is appealing to people and put messages into context issues that people are facing regarding care of the environment. He said theChurch should enlighten people that negative effects of climate change are not God’s doing but the works of man due to his/her failure to care for the environment. Fr. Kwanya further said that the Church should be active in helping address effects of climate change saying when society is affected the Church gets affected too. “The Church must be part of global policies on environment. When these issues of climate change and other environmental matters affect society negatively, the Church gets affected. When the people fail to have a good harvest, the Church is affected,” he said. Fr. Kwanya was speaking to Catholic Media Services (CMS) during Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) organised workshop for Pastoral agents on the care for the Environment in Lusaka. The workshop being at Kasisi Retreat Centre in Lusaka and closes on 23rd February 2017, has attracted National Pastoral team, Diocesan Pastoral, Biblical, Catechetical and Liturgical Coordinators. Others are Co-opted resource persons and collaborators from all the dioceses in Zambia.
