Climate change is real. Progressive Christians care for creation by first reducing, then reusing and recycling. And they do a lot more things actively, everyday, to reduce their carbon footprint, including voting, installing solar panels, and educating.
The truth is, I have nothing to write about #8. The reasons are quite simple. The topic is so huge, I am over whelmed. I am also no expert. And I refuse to say something trite like start taking reusable shopping bags to the store. I reserve that advice for the group of 8 year old boy scouts I led just last week.
Instead, I draw your attention to Tevyn East, a prophet, dancer, activist, disciple of Jesus, who has taught me more through her one woman play about following Jesus than any eco-theology book I have read.
Visit her site, buy her film, watch the trailer below.
I leave you with her three exodus lessons:
1) Take only what you need
2) Pass on, share the gift of God's abundance
3) Take a Sabbath every week
Thank you Tevyn for your faith.
Rev. Abigail A Henrich (ehm!) is an ordained minister who earned her stripes at Princeton Theological Seminary and Colgate University. That said, Abby is really a mother-pastor-spouse who lives in a kinetic state of chaos as she moves from her many vocations: folding laundry, preaching, returning phone calls, sorting lunch boxes, answering e-mails, and occasionally thinking deep thoughts in the shower. Unabashedly she is a progressive Christian who believes some shaking up has got to happen in the church.
