Beyond Blame: Christianity and the future of creation

Fifty years ago, historian Lynn White laid the blame for the ecological crisis at the feet of “the most anthropocentric religion the world has seen” – Christianity. For decades this accusation has been repeated and reiterated everywhere from university classrooms and research labs to coffee shops and pubs. Half a century later, does this charge still stand? More importantly, how has Christian faith and practice changed in the past half century? Most important of all, what are Christians doing right now about the future of creation?

Join us for a day-long conference as we reflect on the White thesis even as we move beyond blame and explore ongoing Christian responses to the ecological crisis of our contemporary world.
