Stewardship: Franciscan Theology of Environmental Stewardship

SVLD-565

At the heart of a Franciscan theology of environment is the notion of ecological stewardship - a responsibility and opportunity to embrace the cosmic earth story with an attitude of care for the planetary household of God. Stewardship understood in this way is another key characteristic of a servant leader. This course will examine ecological guidelines for behavior (ethos) for the household (oikos), and explore the relationship between environmental justice and issues of social justice.
