For my sermon “Caring for Creation” (April 27, 2008) I benefitted from numerous resources. Here are just a few of the links that I believe are important reading for the believer seeking to learn more and act responsibly regarding caring for creation:
http://sustainability.publicradio.org/consumerconsequences/ – This short and entertaining survey measures how many earths it would take to support one’s personal lifestyle. Sadly, my lifestyle (which I always thought was modest) would require 5 planets. In other words, not everyone on earth could live like I live.
http://www.christiansandclimate.org/statement – Nearly 100 leading evangelical leaders signed “Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action”. The document called on other evangelicals and other Christians to recognize that climate change is real, that it affects the poor disproportionately, and that it is a moral imperative for Christians to respond to the problem.
Speaking of Faith – One of my favorite podcasts and radio programs. This one addresses creation care from a faith standpoint.
http://nwf.blogs.com/nwf_view/ – The president of the National Wildlife Federation, Larry Schweiger, is an evangelical Christian. You may find his blog useful.
http://www.peachtreebaptist.net/ministries/faith-environment/ – Peachtree Baptist Church, where my friend Robert Walker is pastor, has taken a particularly active role in faith and the environment.
http://www.gipl.org/home.html – Georgia Interfaith Power & Light is a resource for faith communities interested in doing more in creation care.
