Today's church finds itself in a new world, one in which climate change and ecological degradation are front-page news. In the eyes of many, the evangelical community has been slow to take up a call to creation care. How do Christians address this issue in a faithful way? This evangelically centered but ecumenically informed introduction to ecological theology (ecotheology) explores the global dimensions of creation care, calling Christians to meet contemporary ecological challenges with courage and hope. The book provides a biblical, theological, ecological, and historical rationale for earthcare as well as specific practices to engage both individuals and churches. Drawing from a variety of Christian traditions, the book promotes a spirit of hospitality, civility, honesty, and partnership. It includes a foreword by Bill McKibben and an afterword by Matthew Sleeth.

    strange. As far as I know, images should be indexed on Squarespace sites. Did you reach out to Squarespace support team to see what they say?

      Thanks for your question, Randy. A business need or goal is distinct from a user story or feature description. A business need might be to acquire new customers, generate revenue, or increase conversion. A user story captures how someone interacts with the product and uses a price of functionality. I recommend that you determine the business need and the product's value proposition before you create any user stories. Hope this helps!

    such helpful information! Thank you! I was hoping you could give me some advice on which website builder is best for my needs. I am starting a new business and need my website to include a calander of events that would include pictures and change monthly, as well as taking reservations for classes and able to accept payments for said reservations. Any advice you can offer would be helpful! Thank you!
