Until recently, the natural world was not a subject of much interest to religious folk. This is now changing as our planet faces an ecological crisis of great magnitude. This lecture explores how loving the Earth with its animal and plant species, loving them as neighbors, loving them as ourselves, can become an intrinsic part of faith in God.
