The idea is that today, Thursday 15 October 2009, over 7000 blogs around the world will cover the topic of climate change. Each blog will approach the topic from the perspective of its specialism and so mine will be from an ecumenical perspective. In addition it is anticipated over 10 million readers will participate in Blog Action Day 2009 .
Last week I helped lead a consultation for Methodist and Anglican Ecumenical Officers from across Britain. We were looking at the Edinburgh 2010 mission conference , which is to be held to commemorate the Edinburgh 1910 mission conference , usually recognised as the beginning of the modern ecumenical movement.
