As Good Friday coincides with Earth Day in 2011, churches around the world are reflecting on environmental concerns while marking Christ's crucifixion.
To mark Earth Day today the US agency Church World Service is backing immediate action to fight climate change through an national postcard ‘Countdown to Copenhagen’ advocacy campaign aimed at the Obama administration and Congress.
To mark Earth Day on 22 April, free copies of The Green Bible are being sent to seminary professors and administrators by the National Council of Churches USA Eco-Justice Programmes and its publisher.
The Green Bible, reviewed here by researcher Simon Beard, illustrates that the message of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures is concerned not just with human beings but with the whole earth.
