From "Creation Care" to "Watershed Discipleship"

This article - From "Creation Care" to "Watershed Discipleship" : Re-Placing Ecological Theology and Practice - was published in the Fall 2014 edition of the Conrad Grebel Review. In it, Ched Myers explores how our theology might be re-placed in light of the arrival of global ecological crisis. Instead of an abstract or unfocused theology of creation care, it suggests that the best way to orient the church’s work and witness is through bioregionally-grounded planning and action which focuses on the actual watersheds we inhabit.

Environmental Justice with Indigenous Peoples

Each year, Creation Justice Ministries offers a resource to help Christian communities pray, learn, and act on a certain issue, chosen by Creation Justice Ministries' board. Our 2017 resource explores the impact the Doctrine of Discovery has had on U.S. history and theology, as well as our relationships with God's creation and one another. It also includes information about tribal sovereignty, sacred places, and consumer choices. The resource can be useful for observing Earth Day Sunday on the Sunday closest to Earth Day (April 22), the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1, or the Sunday closest to Indigenous Peoples Day/Columbus Day in October. Find sermon preparation resources, hymn suggestions, Christian education ideas, action opportunities, and more. Download it today at www.creationjustice.org/indigenous, and remember you can find a host of other Christian education resources released in previous years at www.creationjustice.org/educational-resources.
