I have more to come on ‘Scotty…’ but watched this video this morning from Kare Raworth, who also has a book out on ‘Doughnut Economics’. I also think it is a good piece to put in the midst of any set of posts on what we believe. The scale of the issues that we face in terms of a good future / transformation is enormous. It is easier when we look at the issues to shrink back to ‘all that counts is souls being saved’ and the Hellenisation of the Gospel continues. But the death of Jesus is for a new world… ‘a new heavens and a new earth.’ Takes faith to believe that and must be supplemented with action and response. However, if we are responsible to make sure things happen…?
As I watched I thought again about the nature of sin – it is to do with (generous) boundaries. Eat all of this except. I also realise that there are many now who have had those boundaries taken from them – that is enslavement. The effects of sin – alienation at every level.
God help us!
