Voice of the Day: Rowan Williams

“Our present ecological crisis, the biggest single practical threat to our human existence in the middle to long term, has, religious people would say, a great deal to do with our failure to think of the world as existing in relation to the mystery of God, not just as a huge warehouse of stuff to be used for our convenience.”

— Anglican Archbishop Rowan Williams

Williams gets to the heart of the environmental crisis afflicting our modern world. This is really an area where Christians should be leading. The biblical understanding is that God gave us dominion/stewardship over the earth that we might care for it, not that we might exhaust it in an effort to fulfill our every whim.
