AbstractArchbishop Antje Jackelén, LSTC Adjunct Professor of Systematic Theology, delivered the 2015 Commencement Address at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. During her time in Chicago, the LSTC Board of Directors and Faculty read and discussed a letter about the climate approved by the bishops of the Church of Sweden at the Bishops’ Conference of 2014 (A Bishops’ letter about the climate, Uppasala: Ineko, 2014). This essay is one of the formal responses to the letter, presented by Dr. Vítor Westhelle. It lifts up in particular the theological convictions about spirituality and theological anthropology present in the bishops’ letter, a letter that calls the global church to action in the face of the threat of climate change.
