Elaine Wainwright rsm Explores an Ecological Reading of Mark's Gospel

Each month during this year of Mark, scripture scholar, Elaine Wainwright rsm (ISMAPNG), will contribute an ecological reading of the Gospel of Mark in the New Zealand Catholic magazine, Tui Motu InterIslands. Over the year readers will be introduced to this new way of attending to scripture.


         First of the 11 articles being produced by Elaine Wainwright rsm on the gospel of Mark from an 
         ecological perspective  

Along with the human and divine characters in the gospel, Elaine will alert readers to how the landscape and physical environment also adds meaning to an understanding of scripture and can deepen our appreciation of communion in the cosmos.

Kath Rushton rsm (ANZ), also a scripture scholar, will continue her reflection and commentary on one of the month's Sunday scriptures in each issue of Tui Motu. Kath offers a range of perspectives in her articles, including social justice, ecological, and spiritual.  Over the year Elaine's articles will also be available on the Tui Motu InterIslands website.

A subscription form to Tui Motu magazine can be found on the website. It can also be downloaded here (PDF)
