For people of faith, our planet is a gift from God. It is our home as we travel through our own life’s journey. As such, it deserves to be respected and cared for. Unfortunately, society has downplayed these simple truths to the advantage of other goals or priorities for too long and now the Earth is asking for our attention. This webinar will explore the religious dimension of environmental stewardship as well as existing initiatives that advocate for a more environmentally responsible economy.
