This essay offers some observations regarding discourse on climate change in South Africa. It reflects on the specific contribution that Christianity and Christian theology can make in response to climate change. On this basis, it explores some theological resources for proclaiming the gospel in the context of climate change, namely with reference to the apocalypse, creation, human equality, God's providence, salvation and the church as an alternative community. It suggests the need for a theological retrieval of such Christian symbols in order to sustain the available ethical responses.
