Eco-congregation, Die Strand Dutch Reformed Church in the Western Cape recently held a ‘colouring competition’ with the children. The picture was of one of SAFCEI’s posters “Churches caring for Creation” It was difficult to choose a winner, but in the end they all enjoyed it and were encouraged to colour-in the world around them.
You can download your own free colouring-in poster under Tools. Organize a colouring-in competition with your church!
In the words of Alfredo Moser, the Brazilian mechanic who invented the plastic bottle skylight for homes without electricity: ” God gave the sun to everyone, and light is for everyone. It’s a divine light.”
In 2002, Alfredo had a light-bulb moment and came up with a way of illuminating his house during the day without electricity. He used nothing more than plastic bottles filled with water and a tiny bit of bleach suspended through a hole in his roof. His invention is spreading sunlight into the dark interiors of the homes of millions of poor people throughout the world.
