VIDEO: Kingdom Gardeners

VIDEO: The Gospel in a Consumer Culture

Jonathan Cornford, ‘Faith-Thinking’ Public Lecture, 14 August 2019, Whitley College, beginning with Rev Simon Holt launching Coming Home: Discipleship, Ecology and Everyday Economics.

Humanity in the 21st century faces enormous challenges. Australian Christianity in the 21st century is also facing enormous challenges. It will be argued that both of these challenges are linked to a crisis of the dominant mode of living in the West: consumer culture. This lecture will consider the tasks of Christian witness in Australia if it is to take these twin challenges seriously. How might ecological responsibility and economic justice be linked to the health of faith and the content of witness? And what might this actually look like?

VIDEO: A New Way of Living

In this 30 minute video, Jonathan Cornford discusses why we need to change the way we live and why our homes and backyards are central to God's work of healing in the world. He outlines how, from beginning to end, the Bible consistently calls for God's people to form a distinctive community which does not conform to the norm, but whose very way of life is to witness to the character of God.
