A couple of years ago, we did an episode specifically for preachers and church leaders where we talked about the upcoming lectionary passages for Advent and tried to look at them through the lens of climate change and care for creation. It was a wonderful episode, but felt a little out of the realm of what we normally do at the food and faith podcast. Some of us had the idea to do a podcast that was devoted thinking about scripture through a green lens.
So, this is a test! I have four friends with me and we’re going to be looking at the passages for Holy week over the next three episodes and asking the questions of where is creation, where is God, and where is there a call to action for us.
My guests for the first episode are Rev. Dr. Garrett Andrew, pastor of Nipomo Community Presbyterian Church in Arroyo Grande, Ca., and Avery Lamb, co-executive director at Creation Justice ministries.
The passages we’ll be looking at are Luke 19:28-40 and Psalm 118.
