We've been away getting ready for a big church year, but we wanted to share the last couple talks from REVIVE, our annual festival bringing the churches of the network to a field in Canterbury for a weekend of Bible Teaching, Worship, and great fellowship together as churches. This is from Andy Palmer on "Faithful With Creation."
We live at a time when the planet appears to be falling apart as a result of human selfishness, and Christian responses to the crisis have been polarised. Some have reduced their gospel down to mere environmental concern, whereas evangelicals have often tended to neglect this good endeavour out of a desire to save souls. How should we think about this creation? Come and see from the Bible the cosmic breadth of God’s mission to save, and how this might aid us in our evangelism.
Andy, who is ordained in the Church of England, served at St John’s Downshire Hill after training at Oak Hill Theological College. He’s been ministering at Christ Church Balham for four years.
