Down to earth [trend]
Evangelical Christians are usually either blasé or sceptical about themes such as these (Conradie 2006a: 12). We want to make it clear from the start that this report should be a call to spiritual revival for followers of Jesus. It is about developing a Jesus-centred, unselfish, Biblical spirituality (Bauckham 2001: 12). The words that follow are therefore not (unlike what many churchgoers believe) driven by strange secular of political 'green' agendas, even though these 'weird' green groups are far ahead of the Christian Church in their thinking on these matters. The point of departure is that we are dealing with Christian spirituality since it concerns the Christian faith's most fundamental teaching: the Creation. We, therefore, ask that you read the following with an open mind.
