Title

Mutual Blessings : Towards a community centered on the sacredness of creation

Description

By Scott, Matthew R. (2020) -- "An opportunity for dialog between church members and unchurched local environmental activists offers an evangelistic opportunity for a rural Episcopal congregation. The paper argues that by sharing reflections in a small group setting about the experience of the sacredness of nature, churched and unchurched persons will build bridges toward mutual evangelistic community. Evidence in favor of the argument comes from an interpretive phenomenological study of participant’s experience. Important to this research is how an individual’s experiences in nature may offer a unique avenue for evangelism efforts. Themes addressed include ecological theology, post-Christendom evangelism, and the impact of interpersonal relationships on human development." -- Abstract, p. vii.
