Since then, he has written numerous articles on the Christian care of creation, given public lectures at several Concordia Universities, made presentations to numerous pastors conferences, and conducted many congregational workshops. He also serves on the Faith Advisory Council of the Humane Society of the United States. The Center for the Care of Creation at Concordia Seminary has produced a multi-media Bible study and other free resources for Christian congregations. (togetherwithallcreatures.com).
