Biblical environmentalism


(system) #1

By Alexander Carpenter

For our final event of the year, my Graduate Theological Union chapter of the Beatitudes Society teamed up with California Interfaith Power and Light to co-host Dr. Matthew Sleeth. An evangelical environmenalist, Dr. Sleeth shared the textual and moral reasons why he gave up his medical practice and cut his families' carbon footprint. Now he works full time to share the good news that following Christ includes caring about creation and changing our consumer culture to stop global warming. We had a packed room with about a quarter of the audience made up of people from local churches.

Here's a link to his site, Serve God, Save the Planet.
