...many people seem drawn to talking endlessly about the unknowable. Yet no church that I have ever attended has placed an emphasis upon the urgent need for environmental stewardship. We appear largely uninterested in discovering how our various religious traditions might speak to practical, but profoundly moral questions that could save millions of people from an existence that may well become ever more nasty, brutish and short.
Actually, I have written several times about the "Green Evangelical movement", and in particular the Evangelical Climate Initiative, or ECI, which has called for sweeping reform to combat global warming in what it terms a "Bible-based" response to the issue. Unfortunately, I haven't heard much about these guys in the past two years, and don't know whether they are still active.
