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.
