The Gospel of John tells us that, in entering the world, Christ became flesh. The word flesh, or sarx in the original Greek, is a word which describes both humans and animals alike.
In becoming flesh, Christ shared many experiences that are common to animals across a wide spectrum of species including hunger, happiness, sickness, pain, bereavement and fear.
It is within a body of flesh that Christ came alongside all He made in love.
Christ, through his own flesh, makes all flesh new; humans and animals alike.
Sarx is a registered charity (No: 1170976) founded on the belief that creation is the very outpouring of God’s love.
The aim of Sarx is to respond and witness to this divine love by encouraging Christians to strive toward a world in which all animals are enabled to live with dignity, freedom and peace.
