Transcript of a lecture, introduced and responded to by Willis Jenkins, given by Jürgen Moltmann at the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2005 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Moltmann discusses the destruction and healing of the earth and offers an approach to ecological theology.

Excerpt: “I’ll remind you of Martin Luther who said, ‘When the world would come to an end tomorrow I would plant an apple tree today.’ And this may be good for all of us, to plant apple trees today and not wait until tomorrow or give up.”
