ECOSPRITUALITY is about helping people experience ‘the holy’ in the natural world and to recognize their relationship as human beings to all creation ~Sister Virginia Jones
When I started talking with people about creation care and connecting with nature, people wanted to know, “What do you call that in the faith world? Is there a term for that?”
After much reading, I have decided that I am comfortable with the word ecospirituality. It captures a “faith in action” approach not only to caring for the world but connecting with it as well.
It also suggests that the natural world exists for reasons other than recreation, sustainability, or aesthetics. It embraces the notion that nature is a sacred and holy space, a place where we grow in relationship with creation and with the Creator.
