Online - Loving Our Future Neighbour: Earth-Keeping as Christian Witness
@
How wide and deep is our mission in the world? And what responsibility do we bear as a holistic witness to our descendants?

Typically, ‘mission’ means joining in God’s plans for human flourishing, calling all to align with the just and loving reign of Jesus over all things.  And yet we’re now recognising that Christ’s sovereignty is over the whole cosmos, concerned with the shalom of all creatures as a testimony to God’s caring rule.

In this year’s John Stott London Lecture, drawing directly on Stott’s writings on creation care and her own ongoing research on human-environment interactions in Asia, Dr Laura Yoder will show that creation care is a vital part of Christian life and witness, holding an integral place in our everyday discipleship.
