Gods Earth: Too Big to Fail?

Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Highlands Camp and Conference Center in the Rockies in my capacity as Coordinator of the Presbyterians for Earth Care (PEC) grassroots network. The occasion was the bi-annual PEC  Faith and Environment Conference: “God’s Earth: Too Big to Fail? An Eco-Justice Conversation Among Faith, Science, and Culture.”

Keynote speakers included Dr.  William Brown, author of The Seven Pillars of Creation: The Bible, Science and the Ecology of Wonder; Dr. Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, senior scientist and director of sustainable foods at the Pesticide Action Network; Carol Raffenspurger, Executive Director of the Science and Environmental Health Network; Dr. Holmes Rolston III, environmental ethics scholar; Dr. John E. Ikerd, professor emeritus of agricultural economics at the University of Missouri Columbia.

Also, Tevyn East of the Affording Hope Project offered an amazing one-woman show Leaps and Bounds.

Thanks to PEC for a great conference!
