Where the Great Heron Feeds: Christianity, Animism, and the Re-Enchantment of the World

Mark I. Wallace Ph.D

Professor of Religion, Swarthmore College
Commonwealth Chateau, SugarLoaf Campus
Chestnut Hill College

 Announcing its presence in silent flight, the Great Blue Heron teaches us that all of creation is sacred. Using biblical and historical sources, I illustrate how Christianity sees all of Nature as filled with God’s presence and suggest how the vision of a shared and verdant Earth saturated with Divine Presence can morally and spiritually empower responses to the crises of global warming and unsustainable living that are truly trans formative.
