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?
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
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.
