UPDATE: Christians Support PA Plan to Reduce Methane
As pro-life evangelicals, we have a special concern for the unborn. We want children to be born healthy and unhindered by the ravages of pollution, pollution that impacts them even before they take their first breath. The medical community has long known of the environmental impacts on our unborn children. The once thought chemical protection a mother gives her developing child is untrue. Studies have shown that smog, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and air toxics have a disproportionate impact upon life in the womb. A recent study by Shaina L. Stacy and others at the University of Pittsburgh found evidence of low birthweight babies associated with proximity to unconventional natural gas wells in Butler County, Pa., and Lisa M. McKenzie, Colorado School of Public Health, published peer-reviewed research linking birth defects to methane production. The authors admit more research is needed, but the initial conclusions demand action to reduce natural gas releases. Click here to read the op-ed.
Welcome to the home page of the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN), a ministry dedicated to the understanding that creation-care is a matter of Life. We believe that pollution profoundly impacts human life both in the United States and around the world. We believe that the problems of pollution are an outflow of a culture in decay. As such EEN seeks to revitalize and disciple God’s people as they seek to be transformed into the fullness of Christ. We believe with God’s help that the body of Christ can be an example of what men and women fully alive in Jesus can do by bearing the fruits of the kingdom.
Founded in 1993, our ministry is grounded in the Bible’s teaching on the responsibility of God’s people to “tend the garden” through a faithful walk with our Lord Jesus Christ. EEN supports a network of champions and churches who are engaged in creation-care. EEN disciples Christians who are seeking to walk in repentance and faith and are eager to use their gifts and talents to address some of the greatest challenges facing God’s people and the world today.
We hope that you will join us and pray with us as we follow God’s call to care for His creation. On the site you will find ways to get started, ways to connect with others, bible study resources, our interactive blog, and programs/initiatives which cover a wide range of creation care topics.
