A New Reformation (Together this Time!): Lutheran and Byzantine Churstians for Ecological Justice
AbstractAs we face a looming ecological crisis, all Christians are called to act to preserve creation. To do this well, ecumenical thinking is needed. Lutherans and Byzantine Christians may find commonality in their diverse theological traditions that can bring them together in a new “Eco-Reformation” for our own day. A variety of Lutheran accents find deep resonances within the Eastern Christian tradition. Being able to see and to identify these gifts of Lutheranism to the universal church can enable us not only to draw closer to one another, but also to empower us in the battle to preserve creation.
