Practicing Stewardship In A Consumer Culture

As our testimony of the gospel gives meaning and motivation to our relations with other people, so too our sense of divinely appointed stewardship informs all of our interactions with the material world, both manufactured and naturally created. We must strive to live as responsible stewards, making prudent use of resources, cultivating abundance in our own spheres of influence to provide for our families and to bless others. I will review the theological underpinnings of an LDS environmental ethic and discuss practical steps Mormons can take in their own homes that are consistent with both the gospel and green living.
