Big Questions: Caring for the Earth
In this unit students will consider how the Scriptures of Old and New Testaments represent living traditions rather than mere inert texts and continue to inform issues in the world. In particular, this unit will explore how Christian communities, including Lutheran communities, have understood and used the Scriptures to inform understanding of earth care and how the biblical meta-narrative with Christ at its centre can still inform a response to contemporary questions of stewardship towards the earth.
