Thinking through Christian creation care in the climate emergency

18–22 July 2022 (Mon–Fri)

The accelerating pace of climate change threatens the existence of very many of God’s creatures, as well as the flourishing of human beings. One might imagine that Christians would be at the forefront of movements to care for creation and arrest its degradation. We’ll look in the Bible and the tradition at factors that hold us back from leading these concerns, and then at ways we can contribute hope and wisdom for this challenging century.

Who's speaking?
