‘What's my future? What is the future for my children?’ asks Faiez, a former government employee. He poses the same question over and over.
I’m keen to get my church more interested in environmental issues, but there’s a faction in the congregation who subscribe to Mark Driscoll’s thinking on this. (He said ‘I know who made the environment and he’s coming back and going to burn it all up. So yes, I drive an SUV.’) They want to set up a display board promoting a ‘terminationist’ outlook to parallel the environmental one I’m proposing. How do I bridge the gap between those who seek to care for creation and those who are happy to see it burn as a sign of God’s return?
