from the conference: “ecology, theology & revolution”

Rev Dr Susan Jones’ introductory talk is now online. Susan welcomed attendees of the 2018 Common Ground conference with an overview of the conference’s theme and a brief history of “progressive” Christianity. Her presentation placed the “environment and ecology” message of the conference in the context of theology and the revolution we need to be a part of. Link to Ecology, Theology, Revolution

Also online is Susan’s Sunday morning reflection at St Andrew’s on The Terrace, for “Planet Earth Sunday” in the Season of Creation.

being christianBeing Christian in the Twenty-First Century
by Sam Gould
Written to help struggling and doubting Christians develop an understanding of Christianity that avoids literalism, creeds, and doctrines – all factors which seem to be driving people away from the church – this book is well suited for individual or group study, complete with a study guide and sample lesson plans. It responds to the call for theological reform advocated by many contemporary clergy and religious leaders.
