Be a Part of Christ Church Creation Care

Many of us have had peak religious moments in nature when we encounter God’s cathedral in its widest sense, in surrounding landscapes or sunsets. The outdoors is indeed the handiwork of God. Climate change and global warming are now affecting all of creation. The world is at risk. How can we, as Christians, become stewards of the Earth and be responsible in our relationship with earth, as God has asked us to do?

The Creation Care Sunday Forum Series

Sundays, 11:15 am, Parish Hall, in-person and livestream

Beginning Sunday, April 24, Christ Church Greenwich will host a series of talks on climate change

Biodiversity loss, plastic pollution, climate change, water stress — there are reasons for great concern about the health and future of the environment on which we depend. But there are also many reasons for hope. Science points to clear interventions. Innovation creates new solutions. Markets include natural capital. And, most importantly, increasing numbers of people with good will and strong intent are rallying to restore nature and “the handiwork of God.”

Book available for $15 in Dogwood Books and Gifts

There has been a mindset that God gave humans full dominion over the planet without restraint or responsibility. The reality is that God calls us to be good stewards of creation. It is a vital responsibility. In recent decades, theologians and biblical scholars have reexamined the Bible more carefully to better understand our role as stewards of our world.

Marek Zabriskie worked with over 40 authors from around the world during the pandemic to put this book together. Six of the authors are upcoming Sunday Forum speakers.
