UPDATE: Leaving Yorkshire for Lancashire
From Sheffield the John cycled 50 miles into Lincoln, which is 23 miles from the town of Epworth where the founders of Methodism, John and Charles Wesley were born.
At Lincoln Cathedral John delivered a copy of the Climate Change Action Letter to Revd Bruce Thompson, Chair of the Lincolnshire Methodist District. Having arrived at Lincoln in the dry, it was back on his trusty bike but this time in the pouring rain for a 23 mile ride to Newark near Nottingham where he just missed a mighty thunderstorm.
Revd John Kime is cycling 2000 miles up and across England bearing a letter from the Methodist Church's Bristol District Chair, the Revd Dr Jonathan Pye, highlighting the urgent issue of climate change and climate justice.
The letter calls to support actions which will care for creation in a proactive way, lobby the Government which is hosting the COP 26 talks in Glasgow for lasting commitments to care for our planet, and for individuals to take steps 'to tread more lightly upon this earth'.
