Caring for animals


If I may add something of a footnote to the recent debate about the churches' role and reticence in relation to the interests of animals.

It is true that the overall record often lacks a capacity to inspire 'animal friendly' individuals and many Christians have received cold comfort from clergy, in response to deeply held spiritual concerns, over the years.

However, the actual extent of humane theology, as expressed through articles and letters in the Christian press, over recent decades, is both inspirational and considerable.

An extensive selection of archival coverage has been researched and made available for educational purposes, on the 'Fellowship of Life' website which readers should find useful for exploring the subject of contemporary Christian stewardship of creation:
