  1. Where’s the Wright quote from? I could use that next week.

    It echoes Andrew Linzey’s comments:
    The question ‘Who do we think we are in creation?’ is theologically urgent. If only Christians and churches could regain a new kind of confidence in our own gospel theology, we might be able to show our contemporaries a vision of how creation should be, and a corresponding sense of moral limits. Karl Barth wrote: ‘Tell me your Christology, and I will tell you who you are.’ It may be that what we believe about Christ is far more significant for the future of God’s other creatures than we could possibly imagine.
