Theology student, golfer, and competing podcaster Joshua Case is joined by Julia Clawson, Ben Lowe, and Tom Sine discussing the nearly month old offshore pipeline disaster. I describe the event that way as it just does not make much sense to me to refer to thousands of gallons a day as a “spill.”
Central to this podcast episode – “What should Christians think, say, and do in relationship to such a disaster?” As Tom Sine points out in the course of the discussion, Christians have learned to mobilize to help in the face of natural disasters – Katrina, tsunamis, earthquakes and floods. But, what are we to do when the drama unfolds miles from the shore.
Ben Lowe and Julia Clawson remind us that while finger waving goes on in Washington, we who are so dependent upon petroleum products bear some responsibility as we sate our appetite for more and better.
Tom Sine contends we must really re-think our eschatology to include the redeeming of all things – including Creation.
Take some time and go give the podcast a listen. Likely there will be something to provoke you to thinking – or should!
