About the Event

Come and join us for a day discussing how we can make a differences together for climate and faith. We will cover the below with speakers joining us from The Green Christian movement.

The Green Christian Way of Life provides a framework of 4 disciplines – Prayer, Living Gently on the Earth, Public Witness and Encouragement – by means of a dispersed Community of Companions. It has been described as the spiritual “heartbeat” of Green Christian. There will be an opportunity to discover new resources and share our experiences of using the disciplines as an aid to our ongoing spiritual journeys.

Joy in Enough, is our campaign presenting a vision for a society dedicated to human flourishing and the common good, rather than the constant pursuit of more. Recognising the value and limits of the natural world, we aim to harness the imagination of people in churches and beyond. We will share latest plans for developing the campaign, and give you a taster of one of the modules in a learning guide we are preparing for church groups to explore these issues. The day is open to all who are interested in discovering how we might better pray, live, witness and support each other in this time of crisis.

Bios of the speakers 

REVD PREBENDARY DR JOHN DANIELS Anglican Priest and Theological Educator

John Daniels has been an Anglican priest since 1992, latterly serving as Local Ministry Officer and Warden of Readers in Hereford Diocese. His background is in earth sciences, having gained a PhD in Physical Oceanography in the 1980s. Following a brief period as a software engineer, he completed his ordination training with a Master’s degree in Religious Studies.

John’s academic interests over the years have been wide-ranging. He has published articles on Christian-Hindu dialogue, theology and economics, and the ecological crisis. His main concern throughout his ministry has been to help ordinary Christians better understand various facets of the times we live in, and to think through what an authentic Christian response might look like.

Most recently his research has been focussed on the cultural impasse jointly constituted by the longstanding ecological crisis and the Great Economic Stagnation which set in following the financial crash of 2008, along with exploring how all this may play out.

John is an experienced communicator, having facilitated parish-level study groups throughout his years of ordained ministry and also taught at tertiary-level on diocesan and regional ministry education courses in Cumbria, Yorkshire, Wales and the West Midlands. He is currently an Honorary Tutor on the Cuddesdon: Gloucester and Hereford course.
