For Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary the ecological crises we face are interconnected with matters of human justice. Time and again, it is the poor and marginalized who are hit by the realities of climate change, toxic waste, and resource depletion. Our commitment to care for God’s creation ties directly to our longstanding commitments to racial, gender, and socio-economic justice.

In the April issue of Aware magazine we take a closer look at the seminary’s latest initiatives and its move from a model of environmental sustainability to ecological regeneration. You’ll hear directly from Rev. Dr. Timothy Eberhart, assistant professor of theology and ecology, as well as members of sustainGETS, our student run group with government oversight.

Within this issue you’ll also hear from Dr. Barry Bryant, associate professor of United Methodist and Wesleyan studies, and his reflection on the Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church. On page 16 you’ll meet our new director of the Center for the Church and the Black Experience (CBE), Taurean J. Webb, who will officially begin May 1, 2019. CBE will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2020 and the center has big plans so stay tuned.

All this and more in the April issue of Aware magazine!
