Zimbabwe: Church introduces course on greenhouse theology

The Anglican Church in Zimbabwe has introduced a new course on “greenhouse theology” to empower priests with knowledge about creation, the environment and its preservation. Harare Bishop Chad Gandiya announced this yesterday at a press conference held at St Mary and All Saints Cathedral in Harare which was attended by many high-level government officials including the Minister of Environment, Water and Climate, Saviour Kasukuwere.

“The course on greenhouse theology is taught to all those training for the ordained ministry in the Anglican Church and it is our hope that the priests will take this to the parishes they will be assigned to in their dioceses,” said Bp Gandiya.

He emphasised the importance that Anglican Churches around the world attach to the environment. He cited the Anglican Communion’s fifth mark of mission, which encourages Anglicans to “strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.”

“Together let’s take care of our planet earth by respecting and protecting our forests, our animals, our water, our air, our soil, and our flora and fauna,” said Bishop Gandiya. “Let’s stop polluting and poisoning God’s creation. Let’s start caring for God’s world because a sustainable future is possible.”
