Caring for God’s Earth is part of the Becoming the People of God
series. This particular study is devoted to Paragraph 160 “The Natural World” in the Social Principles, The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church. Paragraph 160 treats basic environmental concerns, including environmental health.
Each chapter examines one of the sections within Paragraph 160 in the light of relevant scripture. Examples of actual individuals and congregations engaged in ministry around environmental issues are provided. This resource will help congregations develop ministries based on the teaching of The United Methodist Church and what has worked for others. This study can be used for seven to eleven sessions. Sections include:
Preface to The Natural World
Water, Air, Soil, Minerals, Plants
Energy Resource Utilization
Science and Technology
