Creation Renewed: (Re)understanding Jesus in a Changing Climate
25th November 2015, St Mary-le-Bow Church
A JustShare Christian Social and Political Thought lecture by the Rev Dr Susan Durber, Theology Advisor at Christian Aid.
Jesus asked us to ‘consider the lilies of the field’, but what did he mean us to conclude? As we face the challenges of climate change, and look again at what is happening to the flowers, the birds and the glaciers, new things come into focus. But it’s not just Jesus’ teaching. The first Christians thought that God was remaking creation in Jesus, and not just humankind. They saw him as a new Adam, the saviour of the earth and not just people. Can this ‘lost’ good news find a hearing today, and can it help us face a changing climate; from the city of London as much as from the fields of Palestine?
