Wednesdays, June 3, 10 and 17 from 9:30 – 10:45am
We will gather to discuss the book, Creation and the Cross, The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril, by Elizabeth Johnson
Note that we will be discussing pages 1 – 63 at our first meeting, so you will need to have a copy of the book and read the first two sections before we actually meet.
In this fresh and creative approach to theology, Elizabeth Johnson asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of ecological devastation. In effect, how can we extend the core of Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings?… To venture new understandings of faith yet to remain deeply rooted in the soil of tradition is signature Elizabeth Johnson. She invites us to consider what might cosmic redemption mean in our own time. This book may even offer us some insight about how to think about our current health crisis while offering a vision for the future.
