2016 Sarum Lectures – A Changing Climate: On Care For Our Common Home

  • Course Dates: Wed 11 May 2016, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Among Christians there has been an ecumenical convergence about the environment and what Pope Francis called ‘the care for our common home’.

This is an urgent task that all people need to address. It is so critical an existential problem as to overwhelm our traditional divisions and relativize them almost to the point of extinction. Following the Paris Climate Change agreement, how are we to respond to the care of God’s creation?

This lecture is part of a series of four held in partnership with Salisbury Cathedral, given by the Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam. ‘A Changing Climate: On Care For Our Common Home,’ will be held in the cathedral’s north transept.

On sale before the lecture, exclusively to Sarum College Bookshop ahead of publication, will be Paula Gooder’s eagerly anticipated book, The Body: Biblical Spirituality for the Whole Person, based on the 2013 Sarum Lectures. See here for full details or contact the bookshop on 01722 326899 or bookshop@sarum.ac.uk to reserve your copy.

Tickets for the lecture are £7 and are available on the door.
Subsequent lecture takes place on Wednesday 18 May.
There is a seminar in Sarum College on Thursday 19 May.
