WEEK 11      
Dame Vivienne Boyd was a remarkable Baptist woman who believed firmly that Christian faith must engage the public square. At the beginning of the 1990s, she offered her thoughts on the challenges the church was facing.

Among other things, she raised concern about Christian faith and climate change. Her insights remain as challenging today as they were 30 years ago: “We have been told that this may be the last generation with the opportunity to reverse the philosophy of exploitation of earth's natural resources… Christians who believe that life did not occur by accident but by divine creation, and who should have an understanding of the meaning of stewardship, have a special responsibility to understand the issue, to support appropriate environmental campaigns, and, above all, in making personal choices, to be sensitive to their effect on the quality of the land, water and atmosphere of this planet.”
NZB, Feb 1990, 7.

Fits well with the proverb ko te amorangi ki mua, ko te hapai ki muri-things of the spiritual to the front and the physical support behind...our leaders are nothing without the support of the kitchen, for example
