Abstract

“You are all individuals” exclaimed Brian as he tried to stop the crowds in Jerusalem from following him as their Messiah. The scene from Monty Python is particularly funny because it is painfully true: we often look to follow someone or something as an apparent solution to our ills. The film provides a helpful insight today, as the range of ills we face are set to increase from the impacts of climate change, while traditional ways of making sense of our lives are challenged. Will we start looking for saviours? Will we be led astray? Or could the coming challenges lead to a spiritual renaissance?
