Care for Creation: Christian Discipleship as a Living Practice

In our deepest being, we are connected to Earth, as reflected in the story of creation.  In our connection, we bring forth life and find our delight, for we are meant to be on and of the Earth, to nurture it and to pass it on to future generations in delight, says Daniel Spencer, professor of environmental studies at the University of Montana, in a 10-minute video reflection on care for creation as a biblically rooted Christian practice, housed on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith. The project is an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that incarnate the wisdom of Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video at Practicing Our Faith.
