Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
Green Church: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rejoice!

This is the brief report format.
More detailed reports are also available for this title.

Short Description:   Green Church is a six-week study of this critically important topic from a Christian perspective. Using Scripture and scientific findings, the study begins where we are and helps us think through what we know, what we can learn, and what we can do to make a difference.
Long Description:   Subjects for each week: 1. Repent (Biblical focus: Genesis accounts of creation and the flood, or de-creation.) 2. Reclaim (Biblical focus: the human call to stewardship of the creation.) 3. Reduce (Biblical focus: Sabbath.) 4. Reuse (Biblical focus: Matthew 6:19-21 - treasure.) 5. Recycle (Biblical focus: resurrection.) 6. Rejoice (Biblical focus: texts of joy from Psalms to Revelation)

Normal number/length of sessions If the curriculum's normal lesson plan is followed, there will be 6 class sessions each lasting about 1 to 1 1/2 hours
In the judgement of the reviewer:
 using these materials, or even just one session from them, a reasonable, coherent and self-contained class can be offered in a single session of about an hour.
 using these materials, a class can be offered that runs for at least two sessions.
Target audience:
 Interfaith - addressed people of many faiths
 Judeo-Christian - addressed to Jews & Christians
 Christian - addressed explicitly to Christians
 Not explicity faith-based - not much religious content
