A New Earth Age is Upon Us: From Social Justice to Creation Justice
A great awakening is underway about climate matters, despite current politics and a clown president. The laws of nature do not allow unlimited economic growth. Think planetary commons, uncontained God
By Larry L. Rasmussen
The following video and information is from the website of Lutheran School of Theology at Philadelphia. What is said here is one of the most important messages not only for pastors and congregations, but for all living people and their progeny. It is necessary to think of the mission of the church not just in terms of social justice but in terms of creation justice.
Larry L. Rasmussen, ThD, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, New York City, presented the William Lazareth Lecture in Theology and Ethics on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP). He has titled the lecture “In the Midst of New Dimensions: From Social Justice to Creation Justice.”
The annual William Lazareth Lecture in Theology and Ethics is presented in honor of the late Rev. Dr. William Lazareth (BD 1953), Hagan Professor of Systematic Theology and dean of the faculty at LTSP for over 20 years. Prof. Lazareth served the church and society in a number of roles, including leadership roles nationally and internationally. He was an advocate for greater understanding through theological dialogue across the world’s denominations, as well as an advocate for the poor.
