Second Lecture
Wednesday 27 January 2021, 7.30pm

By Dr Bethany Sollereder, Postdoctoral Fellow in Science and Religion at Oxford University

Creation Past the Anthropocene Tipping Point

We think about God’s creation as something that happened a long time ago. We live in a ‘created world, past tense. Yet, as human actions re-shape global ecosystems past the point of no-return, what happens to the concept of ‘creation’? Is God still creating? And where do human actions and decisions coincide with the ongoing creation of God? In this talk, Bethany Sollereder will begin to explore a theology of creation in a world ‘past the tipping point’.
