Our programs emphasize creation-inclusive spirituality, theology, ethics, and interdisciplinary inquiry.

Programs for Individuals and Small Groups

Do you yearn to unveil the truth of a deeper interconnectivity within God’s creation? Do you want to shed the illusion of separation in our world in order to truly live out the gospel call to embody joy, humility, and love for all? Do you feel alone in your search to integrate your faith and love of nature? CRE offers a variety of programs and materials for both individuals and small groups.

University Engagement

Having implemented the first known collegiate "Eco-chaplaincy," the Center is fundamentally committed to both the academic and spiritual needs of the Sewanee community. Offering both a Master's Degree at the School of Theology, and a minor at the College, the Center for Religion and Environment offers a wide array of transdisciplinary courses focused on the intersections of environmentalism and faith. Additionally, the Center fosterers dialogue by bringing speakers to campus and organizing workshops and symposia. CRE faculty and staff actively engage in scholarship, publishing books and journal articles on the many aspects of creation care, while addressing environmental issues from a religious perspective in the courses they teach.

Community Enrichment

How can the church deepen its commitment to creation care through its celebration of creation in worship, teaching, prayer, and community? How can faith communities align their proclamation, liturgy, and hospitality to provide heart and soul to this great work? The work of “Deep Green Church” explores these questions through discussion resources, consulting services, workshops, and webinars for clergy, individuals, and church groups.
