Description

In recent years I’ve become overwhelmed about caring for God’s beautiful creation. Can one person really make a difference? How should I respond to people who are convinced that what they do is the most important thing to do? Vegan diets, riding a bicycle or bussing all the time, refusing to use any plastic – I simply can’t do it all, so I get discouraged. I’ve started interviews for a book on how to stay motivated in caring for this amazing earth that God created. I’ve interviewed more than a dozen Christians who are deeply engaged in creation care, asking them what keeps them going strong. They have talked about a variety of theological and practical perspectives, as well as biblical passages, that motivate them. In the seminar, I’ll summarize the motivations I’ve heard about in the interviews, and give a glimpse into the various practices my interviewees engage in.
