Saving the Planet: Saving our Souls
Essays on Faith & Ecology

Due to email glitches, submissions will now be accepted until October 1st

Submissions are now open for an anthology of essays exploring the sometimes strained, often misunderstood relationship between ecology and spirituality. Essays should address some aspect of ecological awareness within a faith community and can consider themes of: sacramentalism, sustainability, dietary habits, prayer, meditation, activism, ecumentalism, new monasticism, literature and ecocriticism, human interaction with the natural world and others.

This collection of essays will explore, but is not limited to, the following questions:
How does ecological awareness inform spiritual practice?
What does it mean to have faith in something transcendent yet seek to protect the material world?
Is environmentalism in conflict with spirituality?
How does faith influence ecological perspectives?
Should communities of faith be doing more to protect natural resources?
Is sustainable living possible? Is is prescribed by religious tradition?
