Destructive Creation and Social Isolation in 'Frankenstein'

Destructive Creation and Social Isolation in 'Frankenstein'

Mary Shelley's gothic masterpiece is a cautionary tale that warns of the perils of ego, vanity, and selfishness.
Viewed through a Christian lens, it can also serve as a reflection on what it means to be created by a God who intends us for loving interaction with one another. In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this talk will reflect upon what we – as people and as a society – need in order to thrive, and how God’s people should be looking to the future.

This evening revisits a talk made last year, and adds a new reflection in light of our present time.
