Let’s Keep Lent Longer - 17/03/2008
 
VEGA writes to the Archbishop of Canterbury appealing for reductions in the consumption of meat and dairy products for the benefits of the world at large.


VEGA writes to the Archbishop of Canterbury appealing for reductions in the consumption of meat and dairy products for the benefits of the world at large.

Dear Dr Rowan Williams

Authorities in a range of persuasions concur in recommendations for reductions in the consumption of meat and dairy products for the benefits of the world at large.

However, the advocacy needs leadership, example, and self discipline in fulfilment of such worthy and thrifty objectives.

We plead that Lenten initiatives offer practicable earnests imbuing a timely and enduring episcopal Christian message in harmony with manifestations in other faiths.

Its message of altruistic self-denial also embraces a mercy to atone for the shame represented by the £2 oven-ready broiler as a convenience and fast food in what are falsely regarded as High Standards of Living.

We hope our pleas will attract specific support and endorsement from you during this Lenten period. Perhaps the hymn sheets could be interleaved with appropriate recipes, which we would be happy to supply.
