Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
Hope for Humanity

This is the brief report format.

Eco-Justice Ministries has not had an opportunity to see this resource.
The information presented here has been gathered from other sources.

Short Description:   Dr. Matthew Sleeth examines how God´s original command to “tend and protect the planet” extends into the actions and activities of our everyday lives.
Long Description:   This is the second part of a two-part series. Part 1, Hope for Creation, is listed separately.

Following Jesus is good for the planet. Or should be, at least. This is the radical, yet solidly biblical premise of Blessed Earth. This two-part film series and guidebook experience is a creative and compelling call for Christians to embrace sustainable living out of love for God, neighbor, and all of creation.

In Part 2—Hope for Humanity, Dr. Matthew Sleeth examines how God´s original command to “tend and protect the planet” extends into the actions and activities of our everyday lives. In these final six sessions, Dr. Sleeth advocates a spiritually and environmentally sustainable lifestyle, focusing on six key actions—Rest, Work, Give, Share, Teach, and Hope. As members of the body of Christ, we serve as the hands and feet of God on the earth. The time to act is now. By imitating Jesus and following Him wholeheartedly, the church will become the strongest proponent for “saving the planet.” And our care, compassion, and joyful generosity will breathe hope into a world longing for redemption.
