The topic for this issue of PRAXIS is one of importance: the Environment. The term 'environment' is a clear reference to our natural world, God’s Creation. Though there are significant political, social and economic factors to consider whenever we discuss the state of our natural environment, the concern of our Holy Orthodox Church for the protection of the natural environment is not to be understood as a political position or as a strictly social stance that the Church advocates. Rather, the concern of our Church is theological in character; it is best understood as a mindset or “ethos” that is rooted foremost in love. This ethos is one that we human beings feel and experience as overseers and stewards of the natural environment.
