Healing Earth – Orthodox Christian Perspectives on Ecology and Climate Change

creation-icon“Spiritual ecology calls us to dismantle the powerful defense mechanisms we have developed against our impulse to listen to the sacred in our world. Awe and mystery are so vital to the human experience of the natural world that without them we are doomed to treat nature as little more than a resource, a science or a playground for recreation alone.”

Kaleeg Hainsworth (An Altar in the Wilderness)

Discovering God’s presence in all cultures

Discovering God through Beauty
