For almost 2,000 years, our Christian faith advocated separation from the earth in order to save the soul in a life hereafter. The development of eco-spirituality in the 21st century adopts a very different approach, as we realize that for Jesus and the Gospels, faith in our earth and its well-being is integral to adult spiritual growth and maturity.
