serving god saving the planetPublisher Description

Serving God Saving the Planet is a video-based learning experience that will broaden the conversation with a focus on the dangers of materialism, workaholism, and spiritual bankruptcy—as well as God’s endless invitations for us to enjoy what he has created. This twelve-session, video-based study provides simple, everyday ways to focus on stewardship and sustainability according to Scripture. In the first six sessions, Dr. Matthew Sleeth explores his personal salvation experience and desire to follow Jesus in the context of the love story God tells in Genesis. Dr. Sleeth guides us through each of the created elements—Light, Water, Soil, Heavens, Animals, and Man—and reminds us of our God-given commission to ‘tend and protect the planet.’ In the final six sessions, Dr. Sleeth examines how God’s original command to ‘tend and protect the planet’ extends into the actions and activities of our everyday lives. According to Sleeth, the time to act is now. By imitating Jesus and following Him wholeheartedly, the church will become the strongest proponent for ‘saving the planet.’
