Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article presents an overview of the spiritual impact of climate change in the Pacific in particular, the role of theology in bringing about transformative change, as well as how the received legacy of a particular way of thinking about creation has been a barrier to effective engagement and change. The role of how and why theology can either be a transforming or disempowering mediator for change is considered and the case is made for why God cannot be ignored in the conversations on climate change in the Pacific. The article explores the theological questions people are asking, the challenges communities are facing, and the role of theology and faith in building resilient communities.
