Keynote and Workshop Descriptions

Keynote:  The Bible and the Earth

Presenter: Dr. Trisha Tull

From the first verse of Genesis to the closing chapter of Revelation, Scripture has much more to say about the natural world than most modern readers see. In this keynote, we will examine passages from throughout Scripture that highlight both gratitude and concern for the entire created world, and that support an ecologically sensitive spirituality and ethic.
