Operation Noah trustee, Mick Oliver, reviews this powerful new teaching series from Revd Jon Swales and Alice Brencher.
In a world of news and stories, truth and lies, it’s hard to navigate how, as a Christian, I should respond to climate change. It’s also hard to navigate my own feelings of despair, worry, guilt and hope.
The Revd John Swales with Alice Brencher leads a series of six in-depth studies into climate justice, explaining and exploring how we should respond as Christians. This is done in a truth-filled, gentle manner through facts, Bible verses, prayers and personal reflective poems.
This teaching series from Swales and Brencher is good follow-on to Operation Noah’s Tenants of the King Bible study, which I highly recommend. The sessions are:
- Climate justice – the story we find ourselves in
- Climate justice – just Jesus – enacting the kingdom in a world of climate injustice
- Climate justice – discipleship – re-evaluating what we prize
- Protest and activism – driving a spoke into the wheel of climate injustice
- Lament – a spiritual resource for a hurting world
- Cruciform adaptation – living faithfully and dying well
The course can be used in many ways:
- Listen to it while getting in those 10k steps (that’s what I did!)
- Watch at home with a few friends, chatting about it at various points over tea and cake or glass of wine
- Suggest it to your church home groups
- Think of something else and let us know!
