Jesus and the Earth

The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Revd James Jones, has a new book, Jesus and the Earth, published this week. His subject, the environment, is not one always associated with evangelicals such as Bishop Jones.

“Forget heaven, we must save Earth, bishop tells church” in The Times.
“Save planet as well as your souls, says bishop” in the Telegraph.
“Bishop urges GM probe and pleads to Christians to save Planet Earth” in the Liverpool Daily Post.

I suspect that the Telegraph headline reflects the bishop’s views more accurately than does the one in The Times.

According to Christian Ecology Link the book is to be “the Lent Study Book in 2004 in the Anglican church”.

The bishop gave a lecture on this topic at a conference in February this year.

Wrong place for a school

In August this year the Government gave final approval for the building of a new City Academy in the Kensington/Fairfield area of Liverpool to be jointly sponsored by the Church of England and Roman Catholic Church. The Liverpool Echo reports today that residents are saying that the intended site is the wrong place for a school and will ruin one of the last remaining green spaces in Kensington.
