I was thrilled when the folks at Important Media central announced the launch of Eden Keeper, a new blog about religion and the environment. While I’ve only recently returned to church, I’ve been fascinated by this particular intersection for years, and have really enjoyed the content published by Robyn Purchia and her team. I particularly enjoy […]
Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a post for SUNfiltered on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’ first solar-powered meetinghouse in Farmington, Utah. That experiment apparently went so well that the Church decided to continue down this path: another meetinghouse built to green standards just opened in Mesa, Arizona.
While many of us in the environmental community literally “rejoice” in the growth and prominence of the creation care within evangelical Christianity, I’d guess we’re still trying to figure this movement out. I think the same probably goes for more traditional evangelicals, who (at least in my experience) often question the adherence of these people […]
Pope Benedict XVI added to his growing reputation as the “green Pope” on Tuesday with the release of a new encyclical Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth). A call for sustainable development in the broadest sense, the Pope’s letter addressed the human and environmental costs of “business as usual,” and established “doing well by doing […]
Make this Easter a Green one. 700 new chemicals are untested for toxicity. Check out the new batch of Alternative Autos.
Hey, you know that old conflict between religion and science? Remember the Scopes monkey trial in 1925 or the 1960 film about the case? How about the legislative battles of the last few years in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Kansas over the mandatory inclusion of intelligent design alongside evolution in public schools? Waiting for worldviews to […]
“From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.” (Romans I: 20) “Have you not seen how God sets forth a […]
May Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and even Cinco de Mayo… lots to celebrate in May. We had lots to celebrate at sustainablog, also… especially a bevvy of new voices who joined us during the month. Those new writers got us over our Spring fever slump, and took sustainablog in some very interesting new directions… […]
With several new GO blogs launching in March, a few of sustainablog’s regulars moved on to other posting assignments. We were fortunate that a number of friends, such as the folks at Life Goggles, Environmental Defense Fund, and Eco-Libris, did admirable jobs in filling the gap. Additionally, we were pleased to republish several posts from […]
Fellow Green Options blogger, Sam Aola Ooko, recently related that there has been a reconciliation of religion and evolution. As written in that EcoWorldly blog post — St. Charles Darwin Unveiled: Catholics, Anglicans Finally Agreed on Evolution — it seems that the Vatican and the Church of England have decided that there is a place […]
David Loy, a Buddhism scholar, presented a lecture at Vanderbilt University recently describing a spiritual perspective on the challenge of consumerism. There is a video available that is worth watching if you have a free hour and, like me, are into this kind of stuff! Otherwise, I will give an overly simplistic summary below. The […]
Editor’s note: Chad Crawford, our regular writer on the intersection of religion and the environment, is taking some vacation time this week, so we’re pleased to offer another post from one of Professor Siman Sethi’s students in her Media and the Environment course at the University of Kansas. Writer Lauren Keith originally published this post […]
