"If we look into the Christian green heritage, which is what this booklet briefly sets out to do, we will recognize that in the Bible and the holistic strands of the Christian tradition, as well as in many Christians today, Christianity does respond to the concerns of modern men about this frail planet, which small and wounded though it is, is the only home of the human species and other members of the earth community". -- Intro.

"The environmental movement has proved to be curiously ambiguouise as a moral crusade. In theory it should have been perfect. Everyone is for life and health, clean air and pure water, so how could there be any quarrel with a movement devoted to these ends ? Yet the poor, the oppressed minorities, the non-industrial nations exhibited massive disinterest. This disinterest often turned to active hostility as preparations went forward for the 1972 United Nations' Conference on the Human Environment. Why did this conflict happen ? Was it inevitable ? Is the tension between environmentalists ans the poor in the very nature of the case ? Are we learning again that there are no movements free of political conflict ? Or are there fundamental differences in assumptions about man, nature, and society underlying this debate ? These questions are addressed in the following pages from the perspective of the ecumenical community developed within and around the World Council of Churches, and arise out of a study process which involved diverse viewpoints at all stages." -- Author's Introductory Note.

Notes
The author, a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada, reviews the Christian, scripture-based commitment to creation and hence to environmental action. He describes the history and work of the Arocha Ecumenical Christian Conservation Centre [i.e. ARocha Christian Field Study Centre and Bird Observatory] at Cruzinha in southern Portugal which was founded by Peter Harris, a Church of England priest and member of BCMS. "The centre works with local environmental groups and is now managed by a local board. It welcomes visitors, mostly student groups coming to study the birds and plants of the Alvor estuary close to the centre. In addition to the work of Christian hospitality, the staff are actively involved in research." "[T]he Anglican Consultative Council is seeking to set up an Anglican Environmental Network. This work will be co-ordinated by the Rev. Canon Eric Beresford, Consultant for Ethics for the Anglican Consultative Council. Our hope is that the network will help Anglicans to work together and, with our ecumenical partners, to reflect something of God's love for all creation, and to promote more just and sustainable environmental practices."

Notes
The author, Episcopal bishop of Alaska, discusses the connection of Christianity and the environment. It is particularly apparent in the sacraments of baptism and the eucharist. The author reports the observation of one participant at a conference on baptism, saying: "Since one of the most fundamental elements of the sacraments -- water -- is also a critical environmental issue, why is it difficult to connect environmental awareness with Christian faith and life ? The answer to their problem was, as she said `in the font' (p. 14)." Speaking of Christ and the Eucharist the author says: "In the merged light of a Spring Equinox Sun and a Full Moon (this is how we determine the date of Easter) the Dawn of restored life rises. Jesus instructs us to take water and re-birth life; to take oil and heal; to take the grain and fruit of the earth and, by eating and drinking, restore what our First Parents lost by eating and drinking. The purpose and holiness of created life is revealed, as the Uncreated Light of Easter dawn mingle with the created light of a new morning (pp. 15-16)". "Let us approach the font and table to rediscover our authentic life and spirituality. Our discussions of Eucharist and baptism usually concern what we add to the elements by our prayers. It is at least as important to ask what is `uncovered' [in italics in text] in the water and in the bread. Our prayers are to illuminate the dimness of our spiritual sight, to uncover the elements in the beauty of their God-given holiness. In the water, we see the true nature and holiness of all water. In the bread and cup, we see the true holiness of all food. In this way, through Jesus, the elements of the Created life, this Environment, become the sacred vehicles that reveal a Living God".
