Bibliography and Printed Resources

One of the activities of the Episcopal Ecological Network is to educate ourselves about the issues before us.  We feel it is necessary to gain a deepening knowledge of the theological and spiritual issues, as well as scientific and practical ecological issues.

With this page, the Episcopal Ecological Network provides a bibliography of resources in the print media to assist you in reflecting on and educating yourself about God's Creation and in what you can do to act in ways that protect, heal, and honor the integrity of God's creation, leading to intentional  changes in lifestyles that reflect a reverence for God's Creation.

Please take time to browse our listings.
