Preaching on the environment
Rolston lecture at Taiwan Theological Seminary, Taipei, June 2, 2016. Biblical faith originated with a land ethic. Within the covenant, keeping the commandments, the Hebrew people entered a promised land. Nature is the creative, generative powers on Earth. Spirit is the animating principle that raises up life from the ground. Christian citizens ought to join others shaping a public environmental ethic. Earth is promised planet, planet with promise, sacred, holy ground.
