Living Faithfully in the Anthropocene: Theological Imagination and Ecological Practices for the Church

Living Faithfully in the Anthropocene: Theological Imagination and Ecological Practices for the Church.

Surrounded and daily reminded of the ‘ecological wounds' of our current reality, how might the Church live faithfully?

This short Faith Thinking course explores how the Christian tradition might awaken our imagination and nourish new (ancient) ways of inhabiting the world - offering theologies and practices that respond to the ecological challenges we face.

The University of Otago Theology Programme has been partnering with local churches to run Faith Thinking events since 2013.

The format, involving faculty and other knowledgeable teachers connected with the Programme, offers five hours of engagement, usually over a Friday night and Saturday morning. Faith Thinking events offer introduction to a wide range of areas related to Christian faith: the Bible, theology, pastoral realities, church history, spirituality and mission, ethics.

Over the last nine years over 800 people have attended Faith Thinking events hosted in Dunedin, Invercargill, Timaru, Christchurch and Queenstown.

In September 2022 we are delighted to be running our first Faith Thinking event in Wellington – in partnership with St John's in the City Presbyterian Church.
