CONFERENCE SYNOPSIS
—————————————-
The Christian faith tells of the salvation that God provides through Jesus Christ. The world in this 21st century faces new challenges from climate change and related humanitarian issues. Is it part of our Christian mission to respond to such environmental and humanitarian crises?Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” This prayer has profound implications on the reconciliation of the relationships between God, people of this world, and the rest of creation. It has practical consequences on how God’s people to live out His kingdom values now on earth.This inaugural creation care conference seeks to bring Christians from various walks of life to explore the implications and consequences of The Lord’s Prayer within the overarching gospel message. Just as prayer is a conversation between the Divine and His image bearers, we hope that this conference will catalyse conversations through a line up of talks and open discussions for rallying Christians towards missional creation care.———————————-
CONFERENCE TALKS
———————————-
Talk 1: On Earth as it is in HeavenTalk Synopsis:
What is the theological basis for Creation Care? We will explore the intimate relationship between God, people and the rest of creation and what the gospel means for the whole creation. When we pray God’s kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven, what does that mean for the present creation?

Speaker: Mr. Lawrence Ko, is the National Director of Singapore Centre for Global Missions. He has been a pastor, social entrepreneur, and missions director in Asia for the past 25 years.

 

Talk 2: What on Earth is happening now?

Talk Synopsis:
For many years, Singapore has been shielded from many global environmental issues and crisis affecting other countries around the world. However, these “privileges” are diminishing as the issues are now slowly coming to our shore. The annual haze caused by the deforestation in our neighbouring countries is just one of the many examples. To better understand the gravity and extent of the issues, we will learn from the speaker the current state of our planet and what are the environmental concerns Singaporeans will increasingly face.

Speaker: Prof. Freddy Boey, is Deputy President and Provost of Nanyang Technological University (NTU). A Professor of Materials Engineering, he has a track record of breakthrough commercial applications that have given the “made in Singapore” label pride of place on the global stage.

 

Talk 3: His Kingdom come on earth

Talk Synopsis:
The global environmental crisis calls for urgent action. How can the Church respond in biblical and creative ways? We will hear stories of creation care being lived out holistically by Christians and explore what the Christian distinctives are to caring for God’s creation.

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Tan Yak Hwee, is currently the Programme Secretary, Reflection and Research for Council for World Mission located in Singapore. She used to teach New Testament Studies at Taiwan Theological College and Seminary, Taipei.

"Reading and Reflection"
study guide
1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
