Article 1: In his sermon preached June 5, 2016, at the Ho-Ping Church in Taipei, Rolston emphasized that, like ancient Israel, all peoples today reside on lands with promise, promised lands. Taiwan was long known as Formosa, the beautiful island. Americans sing "America, the Beautiful." Earth is a planet with great promise; such planets are rare in the universe. The main theme of ecological ethics is homing. We are all "Earth gardeners" who have a divine destiny to "care for the Earth," our home planet.
Article 2: During his three visits to Taiwan, in 2004, 2008, and 2016, Dr. Rolston has given 45 lectures. TESA set the theme of these 45 lectures according to the contents of Rolston's books, from Philosophy Gone Wild, Science and Religion, to Environmental Ethics to A New Environmental Ethics: The Next Millennium for Life on Earth. In Taiwan, we would like to keep on promoting what we have learned from his messages in his books and his life.
