Religion and Climate Change: The Space Between Church and Not-Church
People are passionate about their spiritual beliefs, and people are passionate about climate change (naysayers and believers alike). Often, these two topics collide, as Biblical beliefs in human dominion over the Earth are used to justify the rampant destruction of the planet. It doesn't have to be so, and many churches are actually embracing the connectedness between solving climate change and spirituality.
The Space Between Church and Not-Church: A Sacramental Vision for the Healing of Our Planet by Caroline S. Fairless explores just how we can "awaken our hearts to the needs of our imperiled planet":
Healing our planet is a relational and spirit-centered process, requiring humans to reclaim our appropriate place among the earth community, intrinsic to the integrity of the whole. This book invites readers to release the human-centered biblical justifications of dominion and rule for the sake of a natural web morality, insisting on the sacramental nature of all life. The process awakens our hearts to the needs of our imperiled planet and calls us to servant action from our place within the biotic community.
