From page A3 | April 04, 2014 |

“Science & Religion: A Partnership for the Planet” is the title of a lecture-discussion planned for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 10, at Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, 1701 Russell Blvd. in Davis. The speaker will be Larry Rasmussen, Reinhold Niebuhr professor emeritus of ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
Described as one of the world’s foremost Christian environmental ethicists, Rasmussen has mentored a generation of Christians in eco-theology and “green religion.” He spearheaded the “greening” at the Union Theological Seminary as an institution and rooted his courses and scholarship in the practice of environmental justice with communities and community leaders.

He has published more than a dozen books, including the award-winning “Earth Community, Earth Ethics.” He is currently directing a 10-year project on Earth-honoring Christianity at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, N.M.
A Minnesota native, Rasmussen studied history and philosophy at St. Olaf College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in 1964. He received a bachelor of divinity degree from Luther Theological Seminary (1965), and his Th.D. from Union Theological Seminary (1970).

After service as an assistant professor of religion at St. Olaf and a professor of Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., he was appointed the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York in 1986, retiring in 2004. He served as co-moderator of the Justice, Peace, Creation unit of the World Council of Churches (1990-2000).

Panelists will be Dina Biscotti of the Blue-Green Alliance; Peter Moyle, a professor and associate director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at UC Davis; and Samuel Thomas, an associate professor of religion and associate director of the Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture at California Lutheran University.
