The North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church (NCCUMC) kindly invited me in 2017 to join their Creation Care team. At a meeting that year, Bishop Hope Morgan Ward suggested that during the Lenten season we produce some teachings that clarify how creation care/climate change is a biblical issue, as well as an environmental one; that is, that the teachings reveal the theological underpinnings of climate change as a religious issue.

In response, I wrote three brief articles that are being posted to a website of the NCCUMC:

The three teachings are also posted to the website of under the Events tab: see Lent 2018. I hope you will read them over and send any comments using the Contact form on the site.
