Youth for Eco-Justice

Hi everyone,

I've been invited to attend the Youth for Eco-Justice training organised by the World Council of Churches and Lutheran World Federation in Durban, South Africa!

From the 26th of November to the 10th of December this years I will be meeting other Christian young people from around the world between 18 and 30 years old who care about environment and justice issues.

If you would like to help me get there, you can make a donation through the button on the right.

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
