Anderson: Religions must unite to act as environmental stewards

Who will tackle climate change? Who will lead the charge toward water conservation? Who is responsible? And who is capable?

Matthew Anderson, executive director of the National Religious Partnership for the Environment, believes the responsibility falls to the religious.

During Monday’s 2 p.m. Interfaith Lecture in the Hall of Philosophy, Anderson discussed the Week Four interfaith theme “Water: Life Force/Life Source” with a lecture titled “Wholly Holy Water — The Fundamental and Sacred Nature of Water.”

The National Religious Partnership for the Environment is a multi-faith organization that works to protect and conserve the environment. Its partners are four different religious groups: the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Council of Churches of Christ, the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, and the Evangelical Environmental Network. They work together to advance biblical understanding and the religious responsibility for environmental stewardship.
