Ecology Lecture: Can the Earth be Sacred Once Again?

Anthropogenic climate change challenges theology to inspire a reverence for the earth that is authentically Christian and resolutely modern, while at the same time recognizing that something has gone ecologically wrong in Christendom. Please join us for a lecture on this subject by Sean J. McGrath, Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Memorial University. Professor McGrath graduated from the University of St Michael’s College in 1999 with an MA in theology and finished his doctorate in philosophy at the University of Toronto (2002), serving as USMC Residence Don throughout that time. He is the author of several books in the philosophy of religion, most recently Thinking Nature: An Essay in Negative Ecology (Edinburgh University Press, 2019).
