Daily we hear sobering news of global warning and melting glaciers, dishing energy sources and peak oil use, powerful hurricanes and devastated communities, species extinction and habitat loss. Caring for creation, serving and tending to it, and gratefully delighting in its gifts has been an important Christian witness and practice for centuries, but it has taken on a new urgency today as a way of life lived literally for the sake of the life if the world. Dan Spencer, an ethicist and environmentalist in Montana who sometimes calls himself a "geologian," helps us recognize this practice as one that is grounded in scripture and crucial to faithful living. Through this practice, we honor and respond to God's sacramental presence in the material world, and we grow in love for all our neighbors, both humankind and otherkind.
This bundle includes 8 films around creation care and three bonus films: Technology, Compassion and The Last Word Is Life.
This conversation is based on Dan's chapter in On Our Wy: Christian Practices for Living a Whole Life. For more information on this book and other resources on Christian living, or Christian practices, visit www.practicingourfaith.org.
