For around 10,000 years people around the globe have secured their livelihoods through agricultural work. Care of land, plants, fellow animals, and community members shaped their daily activities, their self-understanding, and how they thought about life’s major questions. It is only recently that these long-standing agrarian sensibilities have been eclipsed.

But can agrarian ways teach us about God, the nature of humanity, and the place of human beings in the world? What does an agrarian spirituality look like in an increasingly urban world?

This talk is held in the Pichette Auditorium at Pembroke College, University of Oxford, and will be live-streamed. You are invited to join us either in person or online.
