Online - LICC - God, Your Work, & the Environmental Crisis
Our environment currently faces profound threats. Every kind of company and organisation will need to be involved in transforming our economy and society for a sustainable future. As workers, each of us is an integral part of a corporation or organisation that can hurt or help that goal. But do we have the conviction and influence to change things – and could it really work? Can our faith spur us on to the task? Where can we even begin to change our complicated systems? A guide through the theological and scriptural basis for care for creation. Three different approaches to this issue, including humanity’s stewardship mandate, the ongoing value of a world created by God, and our call to care for ‘the least of these’. There will be time for each of us to examine where we might fit, and questions for discussion and input on tables. With this theological basis established, the second half of the programme will cover how to make change in our interconnected and competing circumstances, including powerful stories of how others have influenced and changed their own companies.
