Dr. Susan Emmerich Inspires Biblical Stewardship at 2016 Creation Care Practicum

A generous grant from the Hoghton Family Charitable Trust enabled Dr. Susan Emmerich to conduct the Creation Care Practicum on May 14 in conjunction with the 2016 Law, Justice, and Culture Institute. The unique one-day course gave students a biblical view of stewardship as it relates to God’s created order. This pioneering faith-based approach to creation care is documented in the Center’s award-winning film When Heaven Meets Earth, which features Dr. Emmerich’s groundbreaking work of mediating the controversy between environmentalists and the watermen of Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay. Students watched the film and discussed it in light of the creation stewardship principles taught in the practicum.

All 14 students who attended the 2016 Creation Care Practicum received the Richard Aker Scholarship. The practicum is designed to support the Center’s Creation Care Program, which educates and organizes citizens and communities for creation care, sustainability, and reconciliation. Dr. Susan Emmerich serves as Director of the Creation Care Program.
