2022 Mary Milligan, R.S.H.M. Lecture in Spirituality featuring Kwok Pui Lan, Th.D.
"Planetary Spirituality for Our Time"
Is it too late to save ourselves and the planet from climate change and other ecological disasters? In this age of Anthropocene, we need to reimagine spirituality and Christian practices from a planetary perspective, taking into consideration global and planetary histories, ecohistorical understanding of sin, the political rights of other species, and our responsibilities as planetary subjects. Christian hope for the future is based on praxis and solidarity with all God’s creation.
