“In the beginning, God created…humans in God’s image, and gave them dominion among all the creatures of God’s creation.” What does that mean for us American Christians in 2019? Does God care how we live on the earth? Is how we treat our environment, and our fellow human and non-human inhabitants of the planet, only a political issue, or is it primarily a spiritual issue? Is it just a private lifestyle matter, or can and should our churches “go green” as well? And if so, how do we start processes of change that some might consider controversial – for ourselves and our congregations? This course expands Bishop Sally Dyck’s and Sarah Ehrman’s exploration of faith, science and the message of Jesus, providing facts, inspiration, and practical help in beginning such change. The emphasis will be on personal and congregational ways to leverage small steps to enable bigger leaps in living lightly on the earth for the sake of loving God and loving our neighbors, doing no harm, doing good, and staying in love with God.
