>Evangelicals and the Environment
> Those of us who are in touch with conservative Christianity often feel an
>unease when environmental questions are raised. At times it appears that
>evangelical activists are rushing ahead with ideas and courses of action
>without the 'advice and consent' of the troops that they seek to lead.
> I am suggesting that we discuss two PSCF articles that deal with this
>First Dick Wright's "Tearing down the Green" in the June 1995 issues and Ed
>Olson's "A Response" in the June 1996 Issue. If you are not a member of ASA
>these articles can be downloaded from the page at ASA's web site that has
>links to on-line papers http://www.calvin.edu/chemistry/ASA/papers.html.
>The Wright article is at http://mcgraytx.calvin.edu/ASA/PSCF6-95Wright.html
>The Olson article is at http://mcgraytx.calvin.edu/ASA/PSCF6-96Olson.html
> Any and all aspects of the discussion are fair game. Both authors are
>of this discussion. I will send them a copy of your thoughts. It would be
>intereiing hes hear your 'backlash' experiences and concerns; also of postive
>experiences in your church. More broadly, it is important to convince
>evangelicals of the high moral ground of the movement recognizing at the same
>time the difficulty of translating morality into effective action.
> Perhaps we can begin the discussion next week when we have had time to
>review the two articles.
