As Christians, we are called to global citizenship in both the spiritual and the temporal world.
We are called to stewardship of global resources.
God did not create autonomous micro-ecosystems along modern-day political boundaries. God created a world of community, of interdependence, and of shared responsibility.
That's why the coal deposits of East Asia didn't come pre-stamped "Made in China," nor did the Great Plains of North America "Made in the USA."
God created the earth for fellowship with all of humankind, regardless of race, creed, color, orientation, or national origin.
And sometimes I wonder if for us to pretend otherwise isn't, just possibly, a little bit un-Christian.
