What does it mean for us as Christians to be stewards of God's creation? What does a lived theology of ecology look like for us? Why does it matter?

It’s now the Church’s time to claim all of God’s creation as a priceless gift and develop a robust biblical theology around the issues facing our planet. Sadly, some of the churches in America still stand against the biblical call to steward creation as a gift from God. However, many parts of the church of Jesus Christ are poised for action and ready to lead our culture on emerging issues of environmental justice and long-term care for creation.

Join us on Saturday, April 21 from 11:00 am - 1:30 pm for an engaging and insightful presentation and discussion on Christian Earthkeeping and Ecotheology, presented by the Rev. Dr. Dan Brunner (ELCA pastor and professor of Christian history and formation at Portland Seminary) and the Rev. Jen Butler (First Congregational United Church of Christ, Corvallis). They are co-authors of the book 'Introducing Evangelical Ecotheology: Foundations in Scripture, Theology, History, and Praxis' (Baker Academic, 2014).

Registration is $10 and includes a lunch break. Please RSVP to Creator Lutheran Church (on this Facebook page or by phone 503-698-8081) by April 18 and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
