Here’s the word from the physical world: On Sept. 10, scientists studying satellite images of the Arctic reported that sea ice covered 4.32 million square kilometers of the north. The old record, set two years before: 5.34 million square kilometers. […]

Returning to a Green Orthodoxy (by Logan Laituri)

posted by God's Politics

In an encouraging shift away from the status quo, many Christian groups are taking a more focused look at stewarding God’s creation. A few notable references to biblical environmentalism have been popping up in the news lately. On the recently […]

‘The Green Gospels’ and Ancient History by Ginny Vroblesky

posted by God's Politics

Like Joel Hunter, I was skeptical of the meeting on the “Green Gospels.” “Oh, no. Another group that believes all you have to do is convince Christians that the Bible says to care for creation, and they will do it.” […]

Joel Hunter: Suspicious of the Green Gospel?

posted by God's Politics

Highly suspicious. That’s what I was. I was invited to a meeting whose participants were considering proposing something along the line of “Green Gospels.” After all, I am an evangelical, and being involved in anything that has to do with […]

Julie Clawson: My Search for the Justice Bra, Part 2

posted by God's Politics

(Click here to read the first part of this series.) In my search for an ethically made bra, I came face to face with the two distinct worlds of justice issues. There are those who are passionate about caring for […]

Julie Clawson: My Search for the Justice Bra, Part 1

posted by God's Politics

I realized the other day that I needed a new bra. Usually I would hop in the car, drive to the nearest Victoria’s Secret, and buy some mass-produced, synthetic hot pink thing that claimed to make me sexy. Easy enough. […]

Diana Butler Bass: Michael Vick Versus Gregory of Nyssa

posted by God's Politics

While the rest of the world buried its collective nose in Harry Potter last weekend, I spent my time reading early Christianity. It proved a tough call: The fate of Hogwarts or the Roman Empire? I chose Constantine over Voldemort. […]

Brian McLaren: What Really Sucks

posted by God's Politics

A friend recently brought to my attention the July 8, 2007, column by Rod Dreher in the Dallas Morning News. Dreher, famous as a “Crunchy Con”—a conservative who cares deeply about the environment—provides another excellent example of the important shift […]

Jesse Holcomb: If a Glacier Falls and No One Hears It…

posted by God's Politics

If a glacier falls into the ocean, and no one is there to record it, did it really happen? Perhaps anticipating the question, artist Katie Paterson has created an art installation in which the sounds of Iceland glaciers are recorded […]

Jim Rice: Evangelicals and Creation Care

posted by gp_intern

David Gushee thinks he understands why some conservative evangelicals have opposed “creation care” (i.e., taking care of the environment). He writes: … it seems to me that those who resist creation care sometimes are motivated by a misreading of scripture. […]

Bob Francis: Repairers of the Breach

posted by gp_intern

I have always felt a bit disconnected from Hurricane Katrina – I was on vacation a half a world away when the storm devastated the Gulf Coast. Cut off from television and the internet, I was not saturated with the […]

Brian McLaren: Knee-Deep in a Swamp

posted by gp_intern

I took my day off yesterday and completed an annual pilgrimage of mine, a pilgrimage that began when I was a boy. I used to walk hand-in-hand with my dad to a pond near our home in upstate New York, […]

Bob Francis: Your Comments on Dobson and Warming

posted by gp_intern

First of all, kudos to those who took the high road this week when commenting on our global warming posts. While there are still occasional exceptions, most of you displayed graciousness and civility, even in disagreement. And if I am […]

Brian McLaren: Anti-Anti-Global-Warming Group’s Silver Lining

Why I Work for Immigration Reform (by Patty Kupfer)
When I tell people that I work on immigration reform, they usually laugh or say, "way to pick an easy topic." Everyday it feels like there is more fear, more hate. Raids are picking up in Nevada, California, and New York. A number of senators ...
