RST 339 - Spirituality for an Ecological Age


An exploration of contemporary proposals for new modes of Christian praxis in response to the critical moment of 21st century Earth history, which calls for the activation of creative energies to meet the current planetary crises of climate disruption, species extinction, resource depletion, food scarcity and, in light of these, unprecedented levels of human distress and suffering. Since religious traditions perceive our environmental situation as a disorientation of human consciouness and spirit summoning moral conversion, this course asks what specifically Christian initiatives and resources are available to fund a disciplined, creative and celebratory ecological spirituality arising from the religious tradition, the new cosmology and in dialogue with other sacred and secular voices of wisdom.
