2012 in Review - Part 2

In this past year I awakened in a meaningful way to the need to change the way we live. Our very lifestyle is poisoning ourselves and destroying our environment. As disciples of the Creator God, we must adopt a different mentality toward the created world. We must stop treating it as disposable, exploiting it for our personal pleasures without concern for the rest of the people with whom we share the planet, nor the others who will come after us. This also ties into the issue of equality, since our wealth and privilege as Americans thrives on and perpetuates economic inequality. I continue to be challenged to live more sustainably and justly.

How do you understand the relationship between faith and the environment? What does sustainable living look like?
