Our Indivisible Environment: Patriarch Bartholomew and How Saving the Environment Can Help Save Our Souls

27th October 2009


intheworld His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, spiritual leader to Orthodox Christians the world over (300 million in all), has written an opinion piece in today’s Wall Street Journal, titled “Our Indivisible Environment.”

The piece outlines the Orthodox Christian’s place in the ecological struggle to save our planet. Patriarch Bartholomew asserts that the spiritual has a place in this secular issue, writing “The natural environment unites us in ways that transcend doctrinal differences.” His call to action is to believers and non-believers alike, stirring both national governments and individuals to act on behalf of the environment.

In Fordham’s forthcoming book, In the World, Yet Not of the World: Social and Global Initiatives of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the public addresses and writings of Patriarch Bartholomew are assembled, highlighting his devotion to the preservation of peace and equality among all cultures and creeds.
