Overview

A number of readers have commented that it is difficult for them to find like-minded christians who are concerned about environmental issues. I actually think creation care is something more and more christians are thinking about, if search engine results are a reliable indicator. To help readers access other useful material, I have created this page of christian environmental links. Sites are listed alphabetically within an alphabetical list of countries. While I am an evangelical, the sites listed represent all parts of the christian church. I trust you can find something of interest.
