About Uniting Earthweb
Uniting Earthweb is a network of Uniting Church people within NSW and the ACT who work for a greater connection between ecology and Christian faith and practice, including through theological study, the arts, worship, and practical projects and campaigns.
We seek the earthing of the Christian gospel, the proclamation and embodiment of God's reconciliation of the whole of creation. We work for connections between city and country, between justice and ecological integrity, and between reflection and action.
Uniting Earthweb provides resources for individuals and groups, and a network of mutual support and learning.
About the Uniting Eco Group
The Uniting Eco Group (UEG) is a sub-group of Uniting Earthweb members. The UEG promotes ecological reflection and action within and through various initiatives in and of the church, as central to Christian faith and practice.
Why does the Uniting Church care about the environment?
The Uniting Church has a longstanding commitment to the environment, both because social justice and environmental sustainability are linked and because the environment has intrinsic value.
What is ecotheology?
Ecotheology is a form of constructive theology that focuses on the interrelationships of religion and nature, particularly in the light of environmental concerns. Ecotheology generally starts from the premise that a relationship exists between human religious/spiritual worldviews and the degradation of nature. It explores the interaction between ecological values, such as sustainability, and the human domination of nature. The movement has produced numerous religious-environmental projects around the world.
