God’s first instructions to humankind were to care for and cultivate the world. But what does that look like today? How do we find common ground on environmental concerns, economic imperatives, and human autonomy using biblical guidelines?

Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work for an evening exploring creation care through our lives and work. Together, we’ll explore key questions, such as:

What does Scripture tell us about caring for creation?

How do those working in the sciences or energy sector balance environmental concerns with our need for affordable, accessible power?

How can Christians navigate what can be a contentious conversation? And how can those working in these sectors best steward their influence and expertise?

How can we support creation care at a personal, social, or policy level?

Keynote, ecologist Rick Lindroth (University of Wisconsin, Madison), will offer insight gained from his work as a researcher and educator. Panelists representing Colorado’s oil and gas and renewable energy sectors will share challenges they face as they face as they seek to honor God through their work.

This event is for members of the scientific, oil and gas, and renewable energy communities as well as Christians interested in a biblical view of environmentalism.
