THEO 3540: Creation Care (2019-2020)

View all THEO classes

Humans exist and interact within an ecological theater created by a relational God. Ecotheology explores the biblical and theological imperative to care for the earth leading to a vision for ecojustice and new models of authentic sustainability. This course investigates the ecological implications of Christian faith that confesses a Trinitarian understanding of God as Creator, incarnate Son, and life-giving Spirit. Integral to this study is understanding humanity’s identity and mission within God’s good creation, while applying the ethic of creation care to the Pacific Northwest, especially in light of the implications caused by a burgeoning economy within the fragile Salish Sea region. This course will have special appeal to students with interest in ecology and the environment within the larger interdisciplinary interaction of faith and science.
