Theology

Creating a space for collaborative responsive theology, exploring our relationship with the Creator and creation, and encouraging theologically grounded and relevant dialogue about climate justice and global warming.

Letter of the Faithful

For the Love of Creation wants to hear how your faith speaks to the climate crisis our world is facing.  Caring for the Earth and protecting it is both a moral and a spiritual imperative. Everyone in Canada and across the world must respond to that imperative in their own way.  

For the Love of Creation has developed a guide with a series of questions for collaborative theological reflection on climate issues. These questions can be used in small group sessions that will capture critical reflections towards the development of a Letter of the Faithful for the Love of Creation. This letter will be a grassroots pastoral epistle for faith communities and to wider society that lays out concerns, challenges, and possible actions we, collectively, can advocate for as faithful responses to climate change.

Anyone can use this guide to host a Letter of the Faithful session in their faith community. The guide includes all the instructions you need to gather a group, facilitate the discussion, and share your reflections for the Letter of the Faithful.

June 2021: An Invitation to Plant Seeds for a Letter of the Faithful

In this season of planting and new life, many Christian communities mark “rogation” (from the Latin, “rogare – to ask”) when prayers of petition for the new agricultural season are offered in rural and urban parishes alike. 


The FLC Theology Working Group invites you into a time of “planting and asking” by participating in its Letter of the Faithful initiative. Between now and the end of June, we encourage you to gather with friends, family, colleagues, members of your faith community, for at time of collaborative theological reflection on creation care and climate justice.
