There is a problem with the world today: we've all turned our backs on God and on having a relationship with him. We have all sinned. As a result all of our relationships have been broken: our relationship with God, with each other, and with the environment. We've turned away from God, we have turned away from our source of life, we're living under a sentence of death and no number of environmentally-friendly acts will fix this problem. But, as Lionel Windsor explains, there is a solution.
