Christian Perspectives on Earth Ethics – A “Hands-On” Approach

  • I love God’s creation and want to be a good steward, so what should I eat—what should I wear?

  • Should our church divest its holdings in fossil fuel stocks?

  • If our nation increases its investments in nuclear power, how should we deal with the radioactive waste?

 These are just some of the questions Lutherhostel participants will have a chance to discuss during this inspiring week.

Participants will be introduced to the ethic of ecological justice, trace its foundations in Scripture and theological traditions, and then utilize the case study method to engage in ethical deliberation about questions like those above as well as other topics like population growth, consumption, and environmental degradation; environmental racism and nuclear waste storage; hydraulic fracturing and climate change; water rights and endangered species protection; and genetic engineering and global food security.
Jim’s “hands on” approach is relational and presents participants with real cases where they can play roles in decision making/problem solving. It allows one to delve into the topic, relate to it, and find solutions. It brings groups together in lively discussion and deepens both learning and understanding of the subject. A favorite teacher and public speaker, come prepared to be involved, to learn, and find ways to be a good steward of God’s creation!
