“God saw that it was good”

The Bible opens with the story of creation, highlighting its beauty, diversity and interconnectedness. But today that same creation is under threat. In this series of powerpoints, which can be used individually or taken together as the basis for an extended presentation, Elizabeth offers a reflection on the variety of created life – what scientists call biodiversity – our interdependence with all created life, the threats the diversity of life faces, what is being done to preserve it, and what we can ourselves do.

Introduction and Part 1 : What is biodiversity?

Part 2 :  Planet Earth – A place of astonishing variety, richness and interconnection

Part 3 : We are utterly dependent on biodiversity

Part 4: Biodiversity in our Faith Tradition

Part 5a: Biodiversity under threat

Part 5b: Why does this matter?

Part 7: What can we do?
