Should we be saving souls or seals?: What Christianity says about biodiversity : 16 Sep, webinar
From September 1 to October 4, Christians worldwide unite in prayer and action for the Earth in celebration of the Season of Creation. This year’s theme is biodiversity and the web of life. Why should Christians care about biodiversity? What are the theological and Scriptural roots that speak to Christian concern for the myriad of creatures in the rainforests, oceans and throughout the Earth? What are the differences in how Christian denominations understand this, and where do they converge? Join us for this webinar to explore these critical questions as we deepen our commitment to care for our common home.
