The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation

A draft of The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation is posted at www.freedomwise.com. I seek others to enhance its content and presentation in print and other media because this material will be most completely helpful when produced collaboratively. The material promotes dialogue among people of all paths of faith in overcoming the obstacles that fear has fabricated as false yet persuasive excuses for not sharing the power of divine love as Jesus shared it -- without reservation and extended to everyone. The ABCs of love liberate our hearts and minds from learned fears to allow us to discover within us the native gifts and power with which we are each endowed by our Creator and to share these gifts and power within bonds of trust beyond the ego's learned barriers of mistrust.

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.

Earth Community, Earth Ethics

[Note: This book is available for sale in the AllianceConnect bookstore.] This acclaimed book provides a comprehensive approach to issues of social cohesion and ecological concern, synthesizing insights from religion, ethics, and environmental science in a single vision for creating a sustainable community of the Earth. With environmental ethics as its primary focus, Larry Rasmussen brings together insights from diverse sources on the state of the environment -- and what can be done, now, to halt the degradation of life. Larry Rasmussen first scans our global situation and the threats to life posed by the modern world. Next, he turns to the realms of religious faith and human symbolism, gleaning from them the resources for a "conversion to earth" needed for global survival. Finally, Rasmussen offers a constructive ethic, a program of "Earth Action" that can shape a global movement toward sustainable community. For all those concerned with the environment, religion, and society, Earth Community, Earth Ethic
