WEDNESDAYS IN WINTER WINTER AND SPRING 2023, 7:40PM LUTHER HALL & ZOOM
At the conclusion of Lent and Holy Week, we will resume our discussion of Beyond Stewardship: New Approaches to Creation Care. The next Class will be April 12th.
The publisher states:
Beyond Stewardship is intended to equip Christians to live better in this world by helping us all think more intentionally about the relationship we have with the nonhuman creation in which we are necessarily and thoroughly embedded. It responds to the questions “What if God didn’t place humans on earth to be stewards of creation but something else?” and “If not stewards, then what?”
The chapters in Beyond Stewardship were written by scholars from diverse disciplines who share a deep passion for a flourishing creation. Each chapter begins with a compelling story that draws the reader into new ways of thinking. Each author then looks beyond stewardship from the context of his or her own discipline and experiences. Some re-imagine creation care by expanding on the traditional notion of stewardship. Others set aside the stewardship model and offer alternative ways to understand our presence within the broader creation. The chapters mark out ways to better live in the places we inhabit as individuals, communities, and institutions.
Collectively, the essays in Beyond Stewardship offer an expanded and enlivened understanding of the place of humans in the context of God’s creation.
The book is available for purchase online, electronically, or through your favorite bookstore. The first session will be this Wednesday, November 2nd, on Zoom following the 7:00 PM Evening Prayer. For planning purposes, the forum will start at 7:40 PM.
If you have any questions, please contact Jerry Hornof.
