The Center for Religion and Environment is dedicated to helping individuals and churches embody a “deeper shade of green.”

We believe that a surer foundation of theology, spirituality and church practice would go far in creating revitalized communities of faith that embrace a vibrant and energized response to the call to care more deeply for creation.

Deep Green Church work calls for reimagining the very center of church life: 

· How can we proclaim a gospel of good news to all creation and not just to people? 
· How can we celebrate the redeeming work of God that heals the whole earth? 
· How can we order our community lives to offer hospitality and welcome to all God’s creatures? 
· How can we enjoin a kinship with creation beyond our stewardship of creation? 
· How can we join in justice for all living things and align our lives accordingly?
