Religion and the Environment

It's a common misconception that faith is more concerned with the hereafter than the here-and-now; our faith defines our relationship with the world around us.

What resources might our faith traditions bring to the environmental issues of our day? How do our beliefs inform how we view sustainability, economic growth, and environmental care? What problems might faith traditions be causing in this time of crisis?

Here Patheos writers address climate change, water resources, fossil fuel emissions, and more, as they evaluate the interconnection of our faith traditions and the environment.
