At Preaching.com, Jonathan Merritt wrote about the neglect of Creation Care in sermons. In his article, Preaching Gone Green: Why Pastors Should Address Creation Care, he makes some valid points about Creation Care. The biggest point is that right now there is a big disconnect between Christians and the environment.
One can (and I do) equally blame the blind stereotyping promulgated by the “Religious Right” and the “Environmentalist Left”. The sad part really is that the stereotyping is almost worst within the “sides.” In other words, if a person “within” the “Religious Right” starts to state their concern regarding the environment, they quickly become outsiders. The same occurs within the “Environmentalist Left”.
I suppose I should be prepared for when I do preach on it that I’ll be in trouble. Which is just sad.
