The Society has issued a rigorous and fair statement on climate change. It agrees with our belief that creation care is a matter of life, and that climate changes … [Read more...]

By Mitch Hescox For the first time since 1985, Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards have been finalized, raising fuel economy standards for passenger vehicles to 54.5 mpg by 2025. 10 years after What Would Jesus Drive we finally have higher fuel economy standards that consumers are demanding.

American Flag

by Mitch Hescox & Alexei Laushkin The hottest July on record, drought plaguing almost two-thirds of the US, and Arctic sea ice at historic low levels.

CA-Point-Reyes-NS-coast-300x200

by Chuck Summers One of the primary reasons Rob and I started this blog site over three years ago was to help people see God in and through His Creation. Both the Old and New Testament teach us that God makes Himself known through the world He has made. Our lives are enriched spiritually by contact with nature. Creation is, in fact, one of God's primary ways of speaking to us. This past week, while reading Psalm 36, I was reminded that Creation also helps us speak to God. Pay close … [Read more...]

by Alexei Laushkin When we sow sparingly we reap sparingly. If you have a garden or have ever grown food you know this to be true. If you sow and prepare a meager portion, your field or your garden will produce meagerly. Many of us live 24/7 lives. Matthew Sleeth of Blessed Earth encourages us to live 24/6 lives. We won't have room for the Kingdom and His purposes if we don't give him some room to work in our lives. If we sow sparingly, we'll reap sparingly. The Kingdom isn't just about … [Read more...]

by Tim Hoiland Earlier this year I heard Christopher J.H. Wright speak here in Phoenix about "saints in the marketplace" -- what it means to be a Christian whose work does not take place inside a Christian bubble. I've been reading Wright's excellent book The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church's Mission (Zondervan), which includes a chapter on mission in the public square, on which (I assume) his talk was based. For those unacquainted with the term public square, a … [Read more...]
