Janelle Tupper writes for Third Way Cafe:
Balancing the needs of a healthy economy with the needs for clean air and safe drinking water requires a nuanced approach in which both sides are willing to discuss alternative solutions – not inflexible positions.
Protecting the environment involves certain sacrifices. However, we follow a God who demonstrated that sacrifice is the truest form of love. As people created by God, we are called to value life over money, the vulnerable over the powerful, and responsible stewardship over unchecked economic expansion.
