Turning a Crisis into a Drama: Becoming actors in response to climate change
From Kasia Stoinska
Welcome to this special recording for COP26 and beyond, where we consider the power of drama, parable and liturgy to immerse us bodily in current reality, and give us vision for a way forward.
I am Harriet Harris, theologian and Chaplain at the University of Edinburgh, and I am joined by Prof Anthony Reddie, a participatory black liberation theologian, and author of many books including Theologising Brexit and Is God Colour-Blind? And Claire Henderson-Davis a dancer, choreographer, theologian and public liturgist. Her film All Creation Waits, on tour throughout COP26, imagines a modern day St Francis and St Clare confronting the health of the earth.
Claire holds that a good liturgy abandons us in the story and offers us a vision for how we might go forward. In this podcast conversation, we feel ourselves wading in the climate crisis, and we ask how we become actors in a drama of healing.
