The Canary in the Coal Mine: Bangladesh

Creation, Poverty

Contributed by: World Renew

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

What is biblical justice? Roy Berkenbosch, World Renew Theological Advisor, speaks to justice as he walks us through the widespread impact of Bangladesh’s 2016 floods. The video addresses the effects of climate change in the lives of our Bangladeshi neighbours, and asks: why should we care?


The Bangladesh Bible Study Series is a three-week Bible study designed to help Christians engage faithfully with the issue of climate change in church groups, youth groups, community organizations, and more. It not only explores our biblical mandate to be stewards of creation but also convicts us of our Christian calling to be advocates for people who are poor and vulnerable.
