Conservation and Hope for the Earth: A Christian understanding of planetary stewardship
Monday 25th June 7.30 – 8.45 pm, Trinity Meeting Place, Essex St. Norwich NR2 2BJ
Dr Jeremy Lindsell, Director of Science and Conservation, A Rocha International
Concern for the planet is rarely out of the news these days. Plastic pollution, climate change, the mass extinction of a species – these are some of the major challenges that we must face over the next few decades. From a religious perspective, what should be our responsibilities in caring for God’s creation?
Dr Lindsell will discuss nature conservation and planetary stewardship. He will explore some of the contemporary themes in conservation and consider the impact of a Christian world-view on questions such as: How should we value the natural world? How can we save the planet? What motivates us to do conservation work, and how do we maintain hope when faced with such a massive challenge?
The meeting will take place on Monday 25th June from 7.30 – 8.45 pm at Trinity Meeting Place, Essex St., Norwich NR2 2BJ. All are welcome to this open lecture and discussion organised by Science and Faith in Norfolk (SFN), a Norwich-based group loosely affiliated to Christians in Science. No booking is required. There will be a (voluntary) retiring collection. Meetings and lectures aim to explore the interface between science and religious belief.
