ENVIRONMENTALISM AND BAPTISTS

The Christian Life Commission of the Baptist General Convention of Texas has stepped forward to call Creation Care "A Christian Responsibility." The specific agenda is opposition to the construction of more coal-burning plants in the state of Texas, but the CLC is espousing a cautious approach. In response, the Associated Press reports on Baptists slowly becoming green.

And today I was informed that First Baptist Church of Christ in Macon is addressing the issue of Creation Care head-on.

If you know of other Baptist churches directly addressing environmentalism (or Creation Care), I'd like to know. At this juncture, it is a cutting edge issue even among moderate Baptists.
