Throughout the biblical story, land, economic justice, and food justice are intimately linked. These themes, in turn, are rooted in a vibrant relationship between creation and the Creator, not to mention creation and humanity. This course will explore such biblical themes in light of competing views of land, economics and justice both in biblical times and in our own context, locally and internationally. Interactions with indigenous views of land, land justice and food security for immigrants and the poor in our city, the transition movement, bioregionalism and watershed discipleship, will all contribute to a biblical vision for a sustainable creation locally and on a global level. This course will include two or three site visits within the city of Toronto (to a community garden, a food co-op and the Native Canadian Centre), as well as an optional site visit outside of the city.
