You are invited to a special screening of the thought provoking documentary film, Making Peace with Creation.


MAKING PEACE WITH CREATION
A film by Iwan Russell-Jones

Poet and theologian Loren Wilkinson has spent his life thinking, teaching, and campaigning about the environment—or creation, as he prefers to call it. In an era that has seen growing concern about climate change and the impact of industry and technology, Professor Wilkinson has insisted that this is a critical sphere for Christian thought and action. From their home on Galiano Island off the coast of British Columbia, he and his wife, Mary-Ruth Wilkinson, have encouraged generations of students to think long and hard about the meaning of creation and of our responsibility as creatures within it.


  • What can be done to address the enormous issues facing our fragile and threatened planet?
  • Is it possible to live confidently and creatively in the face of massive problems such as pollution and the acidification of the oceans?
  • What hope is there of making peace with creation?

In this hour-long film, made with the assistance of a team of students from Regent College, Loren Wilkinson goes in search of answers to these pressing questions. Through personal reflections (set both in the beautiful Gulf Islands where he lives and in the urban context of Vancouver, where he continues to teach), stimulating conversations with leading thinkers, artists and activists, and specially created art work, together with extracts from his poetry, Loren Wilkinson presents his own compelling and beautiful vision for human life in the 21st century.

The screening will be followed by a facilitated group discussion based on the recently released Making Peace with Creation study guide. This event is an excellent resource for exploring how to share Making Peace with Creation with your church or community.

The evening will be hosted by Jessica van der Wyngaard and Aaron Krogman.

This is a ticketed event.
