Creation Care: God, Man and Environment
Thursdays, March 26 and April 2, 9, 16, 23
Instructor: Kent Gallaher, professor and chair in the Department of Biology at Lipscomb University
In his book South of Seattle, James LeMonds writes in reference to Genesis 1:26, “This passage, twenty-six verses into the creation story, has proven to be the most destructive sentence ever written, for in it, Man has found an unassailable rational for the eradication of land and life in the name of personal profiteering. This course will explore the concept of creation care. The notion that mankind should not simply view nature as a pantry from which to draw the necessities of life, but that our relationship with nature is actually a reflection of our relationship with the one who created it.
