A Catechism of Creation: An Episcopal Understanding
“Through Christ all things were made. “A Catechism of Creation” helps us to think about what that means. It is written in question-and-answer format, like the Prayer Book’s Catechism (pp. 843-862). Part I builds upon the Bible’s basic doctrine of creation. Part II outlines the modern scientific worldview, including the Big Bang and the evolution of life. Part III presents the biblical roots for environmental care. Each section’s bibliography encourages further study of science, technology and Christian faith.
Episcopal Ecological Network
“The Episcopal Ecological Network (EpEN) is a nationwide network within the Episcopal Church USA that coordinates with the Peace and Justice Ministries Office of the Episcopal Church USA. As such we are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and find our roots in the Celtic Spirituality of this tradition. The EpEN includes all concerned Episcopalians who are helping our Church assume a leadership role in the worldwide environmental movement, just as our Church leads in other peace and justice issues.”
Earth Ministry – Caring for All Creation
“Earth Ministry is a non-profit organization committed to engaging the Christian community in environmental stewardship. We work in partnership with individuals and congregations to respond to this great moral challenge through education, individual and congregational lifestyle choices, and organizing for social change through environmental advocacy.”
Christian Ecology Link
“We are responsible for our impact on God’s creation as a whole. CEL helps members to understand and relate these responsibilities to their faith. Members can then encourage others in their local church to think seriously about these issues.”
New Skellig Celtic Christian Community
“New Skellig gathers as a community on Sundays, once a month. As our self-understanding is such that we are a local church in communion with the larger catholic ecclesia, most members of New Skellig continue to remain active and integral members of their larger parishes as well. By gathering monthly in the more intimate space modeled after the ancient Christian ‘house-churches,’ our members support one another in living more deeply contemplative lives. It is our hope that New Skellig gatherings will thus serve as ‘leaven’ to the larger parishes, enriching and strengthening our members to be more full and active participants within the universal church.”
