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.

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.

Focusing on the threatened Amazon of his native Brazil, Boff traces the ties that bind the fate of the rain forests with the fate of the Indians and the poor of the land. In this book, readers will find the keys to a new, liberating faith.
