Creation Care

Spent some time this afternoon with Rusty Pritchard, who is doing great work with Evangelical Environmental Network, and is a good friend of Catalyst. Rusty spends part of his time guest lecturing at Emory here in Atlanta, and also speaks all over the country at colleges and universities on the topic of stewardship and creation care. He also is in charge of the Creation Care magazine, put out by EEN, and also spends lots of time hanging out with really important leaders talking about the future of global warming, social responsibility, creation stewarship, and how churches and Christ followers can lead in this discussion. He made an interesting point today- basically stating that their work is not focused on making people into environmentalists, but instead just purely focusing on the Biblical ideals of creation care and leading people back to Scripture, with only part of the conversation being around the environment. I love that idea.
