Indigenous theology and the urban landscape

In a fifth clip from this conversation Alan Roxburgh puts a challenge to Bishop Mark MacDonald that concerns for land are not relevant for urban life, but are a mere expression of nostalgia. Mark counters with examples from Indigenous groups who have shown an appreciation for the gifts of urban life, or who choose to live in a way which is fiercely environmental. Bishop Mark and Alan feel that it is helpful for urban communities to recover a sense of the land which lies underneath their urban landscapes. There is a need for the stories of the land to be remembered and for First Nations peoples to be heard.
