A Life of Abundance - Energy and Ethics

How do we, as Christians, fuel our families, communities, and world in ways that are Christ-centered and honor God’s gift of Creation? This resource provides educational material, sermon starters, and thoughtful information how we might transition to a more sustainable energy infrastructure—one that incorporates less pollution, better community health, and an improved caretaking of God’s Creation. It acknowledges that a key component is our need to envision an energy future that provides livelihoods for those who are currently working in fossil-based industries.

Creation-Crisis Preaching: Ecology, Theology, and the Pulpit

[Note: This book is available for sale in the AllianceConnect bookstore.] How can we proclaim justice for God's Creation in the face of global warming? How does fracking fit with "the earth and its fullness are the Lord's?" Creation-Crisis Preaching works with the premise that all of Creation, including humankind, needs to hear the Good News of Jesus resurrection in this age in which humanity is crucifying Creation. Informed by years of experience as an environmental activist and minister, Leah Schade equips preachers to interpret the Bible through a green lens, become rooted in environmental theology, and learn how to understand their preaching context in terms of the particular political, cultural, and biotic setting of their congregation. Creation-Crisis Preaching provides both theoretical grounding and practical tips for preachers to create environmental sermons that are relevant, courageous, creative, pastoral, and inspiring.
