HD Rob Des Cotes: Worship, Beauty and Biology
The biblical call to be good stewards of the earth’s resources is not just a trend, but a fundamental aspect of Christian discipleship. It’s central to the biblical story and integral to our Christian faith. Moreover, creation care is not an onerous duty, but a natural response to the goodness of God.How are we, as pastors and church leaders, encouraging our communities to care for our planet? How do we become a people that lead the way in caring for God’s creation? The 2015 Regent College Pastors and Church Leaders Conference, taking place at Regent College May 5-8, seeks to inspire you to incorporate earth keeping practices into your personal and congregational life. We will examine the theology behind creation care, and look at examples of it in practice. Our aim is that you will walk away invigorated and equipped with resources and practical steps that your church can take as a community.Co-sponsoring this conference is A Rocha Canada, a Christian organization that engages in scientific research, environmental education, and community-based conservation projects.
