Where can you find Christianity of a greener shade? Christians who care for the animals and plants of this creation as our Creator calls us to do? Christian communities that exercise real leadership?
I thought it might be useful to put together a primer on Green Christian and Animal Protetion websites and blogs. What do you think? Here are a number of sites that I have referred to other the years:
