ARRCC Eco-Awards Dinner 2010 : Nominate your church for an award today!

The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) is holding an inaugural Eco-Awards Dinner on 5th June 2010, World Environment Day (in Sydney) to formally recognise and promote environmental achievements within faith communities.

The Eco-Awards Dinner will recognise achievements and encourage other faith communities to take up the climate change challenge. This event is an opportunity for faiths to celebrate the diversity of our contributions to these pressing issues that affect every person on Earth.

ARRCC encourages all faith communities to consider nominating for an award and attending the event.

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
