This is our Father’s world. He created it, and it reflects the goodness and greatness of its Creator. But Scripture also shows us that this universe is a place where a cosmic conflict is playing out. When humanity was called to take part in this great drama, we rebelled. Humanity joined the war against our Creator. Instead of acting as faithful stewards, we squandered God’s gifts. Now Christ has reconciled us to God, and the Church is called to minister in this sin-damaged world.
On Feb. 18-20, The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Sutheastern Seminary hosted “Goodness of Creation and Human Responibility” — a Faith+Culture Forum. The goal of this conference was to show the integral link between creation and redemption, to explore how evangelicals can recover important biblical themes concerning the goodness of creation, to examine the place and responsibility of humans in creation, and to present practical actions we should take now. As we explored these themes together, we wanted to glorify Christ and advance his kingdom.
Speakers included leading scientists and theologians such as Alister McGrath (University of Oxford), Katharine Hayhoe (Texas Tech University), Norman Wirzba (Duke University), Jonathan Wilson (Regent College), Rusty Pritchard (Tearfund USA) and Mark Liederbach (Southeastern Seminary).
This event was presented by the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture and made possible through the support of a grant from John Templeton Foundation and in conjunction with the Henry Center for Theological Understanding.
