REL 205 - Christian Resources for the Care of Creation


Credit Hours: 3
Prerequisites: Successful completion of COMP 201  recommended.
This course engages the relationship between religious convictions and ecological commitments at several key points: a faith that takes our material world seriously; questions about God’s creative work in view of modern science; current theologies of land and place, faithful stewardship, and living responsibly within Creation; and religious resources for public and communal change. With an eye toward character formation, students will engage in spiritual exercises, read and reflect on important written works, take field trips, conduct interviews, and present at least some of their findings in class and through papers.
Meets General Education Goal 8a: World Religion and Christianity.
