Share Theological Understandings
Because our desire to care for the earth is rooted in our faiths, it’s important that we understand those roots to strengthen our collective faith and inspire us to act upon it. You are invited to share your theological understandings and experiences of environmental stewardship. It could be references to your sacred text or other writings, sermons or talks you’ve given, or your own personal encounters. See the Theology page for details.

Email your files to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, contact info, the content of the file(s), and the target audience.
