OurVoices is excited to annouce Bishop Geoff Davies joining OurVoices as a Spiritual Ambassador.
A retired Anglican Bishop of Umzimvubu, Geoff serves as the Patron and founding member of Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute (SAFCEI) which supports and encourages religious leaders and people of all faiths to respond to the environmental crisis and lobbies for environmental accountability and ethical economics from government and all sectors of society (see video below).
Through SAFCEI, Bishop Davies encourages taking action that drives positive change for a healthier and more peaceful world.
Regarding Pope Francis' recent encyclical on the environment, he had this to share:
He is making a crucial call for transcendent values and ethics, so that we recognise the limitations to our power and the need to live in harmony with all of life. He calls for farsighted leadership upholding high principles and citizen governance whereby all people – especially the poor and indigenous people – are involved in decisions affecting their lives.
