In recent years, in the context of growing ecological awareness, biblical scholars have been working to move beyond human-focused perspectives and read the Bible with a deliberate sympathy for the wider Earth community.  In this full-day webinar, we will hear from scholars around the country about reading the Bible through “ecological eyes”, and will practise applying such lenses to scripture.  With speakers: Rev. Dr Jason John, Dr Anthony Rees, Bishop Dr George Browning, Rev. Assoc. Prof. Monica Melanchthon, Dr Anne Elvey, Rev. Prof. William Loader, Rev. Dr Vicky Balabanski and Rev. Dr Clive Pearson.

Join a hub in each state, or organise a small group in your local area.  It will also be possible to connect in as an individual, but we recommend coming along to enjoy the benefits of face-to-face interaction.

Cost: Donation.  Morning tea and afternoon tea provided.  BYO lunch.
