Saying Yes to Life
by Ruth Valerio
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book 2020
Southwell Cathedral is focusing on ‘Caring for God’s Creation’ as this year’s Lent theme. We are basing Lenten reflections on Tuesday evenings around this accessible, practical and theologically engaging book.
Ruth Valerio brings her wide experience to this urgent question of how Christians are called to make a difference in sharing in stewardship of God’s creation. The book is well informed, balanced yet hard hitting in suggesting lifestyle changes, returning the reader to the Bible’s first book, Genesis as a starting point. It is a rich resource directing us to an extensive bibliography and lists of academic papers, journals, podcasts and websites for further study. It will not leave the reader complacent or indifferent to the pressing issue of climate emergency.
