The good Doctor is now a signatory to the Evangelical Climate Initiative. This is pretty serious stuff–you’ve got to be invited to sign on to the document. That means that the bigwigs in the evangelical creation care movement are recognizing Matthew as a prominent member of their community whose imprimatur carries weight. Congratulations, Matthew. Let’s all hope this bodes well for your efforts to spread the good word. And you should know, my friend, that I’ve been keeping in mind your comment from your Bioneers by the Bay workshop that secular folks like myself could often use to show a little more common respect for our brethren in the faith, with things like avoiding casual slinging about of Jesus’s name and declarations of damnation and such.
