My “In the Image of Christ” series addresses the theological idea of the ongoing presence of the spirit of Christ. I believe it is in the spirit of Christ to prefer the earth over riches.
The new chair of the EPA said this to his staff last week:
“We as an agency and we as a nation can be both pro-energy and jobs and pro-environment.”

You might like to fantasize that agencies, corporations, and governments can make a profit and protect the environment at the same time. But that’s all it is: a fantasy.
Greed and preservation are enemies.
This is why I stand with Standing Rock and the environment.
