How Religion Schools Are Integrating a Creation Care Ethic

More than 45 theological schools are committed to thoroughly integrating an environmental ethic into a religious institution's structure and practices. Plans and actions range from constructing or retrofitting existing buildings and grounds, to establishing organic gardens on campus and creating specialized environmental degree programs and courses. An article published by the Association of Theological Schools, a member organization of more than 250 schools of theology in North America, explores the status of the effort to incorporate a "creation care" commitment in 17 of the Association's member schools, identifies the variety of ways schools approach the commitment, and points to creative options for other institutions, including churches, to emulate or use as stimulation for internal conversation. Churches may also benefit from the in-line text link to GreenFaith, an organization that seeks to inspire, educate, and mobilize religious persons for environmental leadership that offers a certification process for houses of worship seeking leadership status in the environmental movement.
