In celebration of Earth Day, we talk to Eric Schoening, an atmospheric scientist with the National Weather Service and dig into his thoughts on conservation and stewardship of this planet as both a scientist and disciple of Jesus. As Eric says, “I choose to focus on celebrating the positive outcomes if we choose to act – leaving a healthy planet for future generations, preserving the beauty of God’s creation for those that come after us, thinking about conservation as an act of love, love for plants and animals and our fellow humans and in the format of a thank you note to God for creating this amazing place.” Join us for a faith-formed perspective on why and how we should and can take care of our earth.
