Christianity and the climate conversation
The biblical narrative provides us with valuable teaching and principles that we can apply to sustainable and fair living practices. These include loving our neighbour (local and global neighbours and future generations); the Sabbath; stewardship of the earth; justice; repentance from greed; the good Samaritan; and Jesus' example of servant-kingship.
The "Common Belief: Australia's Faith Communities on Climate Change" (Source: The Climate Institute) provides statements from 16 of Australia's Faith Communities, many of them Christian, who recognise that climate change requires a moral and ethical response.
What does this look like in our everyday lives?
