The conviction underlying these notes is that the value of God's creation is at the heart of the Christian faith; the valuing of all that God has made is at the heart of Christian discipleship. Therefore responsible conduct towards the earth and the whole earth community should be one dimension of Christian thought and preaching.
These notes make no pretensions to erudition; they are just examples of the kinds of way in which one preacher has tried to apply a traditional exegesis of Scripture to questions of ecological responsibility. The applications are not justified by argument. They are only ideas, which others can use if they wish, pastorally moulding them to suit individual situations. The author hopes that they may serve as seeds which germinate in other soil, and that God may bless them towards the enrichment of ministry and mission.
Keith Innes March 2001
