Sine, “Traveling Together on a Ship of Fools”

August 18, 2008

I’m not a big fan of extended metaphors.  That being said, I do think this chapter had something to offer in the way of being concerned about creation care.  I know “being green” gets a lot of hype and has its stigmas attached, but since working at the bookstore and being around people who really, really care about the environment in a theological way, I’ve come to respect and understand a lot more about what it means to care about this world God has given us to cultivate and care for.  It’s part of being a good steward of our resources to take care of the world around us, or at least to care for our immediate environment and make eco-friendly choices whenever possible.  I think “being green” has become too political an issue in the church, when it’s not really political at all.  It’s just common sense that part of a Christian’s call is to be responsible and honor God in ALL things, even the way we get rid of our trash.
