In the previous chapter I contrasted two different ways of understanding God. The first envisions God as transcendent, unaccountable, omniscient, all-powerful and non-locatable in relation to the earth. The second perceives all understanding of God as emerging from earthly knowledge and firmly situated there. While the two may coalesce in different ways at different times, it is the second that will help us respond positively to climate change. It presupposes that God, the people, the land and all its inhabitants coexist in interconnected networks of life-giving relationships validated through the experience of ancestral generations.
