Religion and Ecology

A wonderful program today on the CBC’s radio series, Tapestry on God’s Green Earth: Religion and Ecology. It was quite inspiring because it celebrated humans and the environment as part of creation (BTW, which was defined as 14b years).

It includes two site of note:
The Canadian Forum on Religion and Ecology
The Forum on Religion and Ecology at Harvard University

I believe that the green nuns mentioned in the broadcast are the Sisters of St Martha on PEI. The nuns see themselves as advocates for earth and ascribe to a cosmology that puts earth/ecology as a necessary step between humans and god.

    I’m not saying that I have everything all figured out, but I don’t see why religion and the natural sciecnes always have to be on opposite sides. I think there is room for both and am tired of experiencing / reading bout / dealing with people that are at either of the extremes, with little tolearance for any other point on the continuum – if one exists.

  2. Tapestry: Interesting program indeed, but I think it was the Sisters of St. Martha in Antigonish, Nova Soctia.
