Film Screening: Making Peace With Creation

We are doubly delighted to be screening Making Peace With Creation on the 20th of October at 12.45 the same day that Peter Harris, Founder of A Rocha International (who feature in this film!), will be speaking at the 11.15 service. Bread and Soup will be served after the service and we will start watching this hour long film in the chapel at 12.45 followed by a time of reflection and discussion.

Making Peace With Creation is written and presented by Theologian, Poet and Environmental Activist, Professor Loren Wilkinson, who has spent his life teaching, thinking and campaigning on the environment, or creation as he likes to call it.

In an era that has seen growing concern about climate change and the impact of industry and technology, Professor Wilkinson has insisted that this is a critical sphere for Christian thought and action. From their home on Galiano Island off the coast of British Columbia, he and his wife, Mary-Ruth Wilkinson, have encouraged generations of students to think long and hard about the meaning of creation and of our responsibility as creatures within it.

·         What can be done to address the enormous issues facing our fragile and threatened planet?

·         Is it possible to live confidently and creatively in the face of massive problems such as pollution and the acidification of the oceans?

·         What hope is there of making peace with creation?

In this hour-long film Loren presents his vision how we can respond to the challenges of climate change through the way we live, eat, build cities, travel and do agriculture. This beautiful and thought-provoking film is produced by BBC producer, Professor Iwan Russell-Jones, and a team of students from Regent College including our very own intern, Dafydd Russell-Jones.

This compelling project brings together a stimulating collection of artwork and interviews from leading artists, activists, scientist’s and theologians from the Pacific North West and around the world.

As if you were not already bursting at the seams with excitement, this is a free event! We really hope you can join us!
