New Wine Holds Environmental Conference


Multnomah Biblical Seminary's Institute for the Theology of Culture: New Wine, New Wineskins, will hold a conference concerning the environment Saturday, Nov. 1. The event will last from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. in Travis-Lovitt Hall, rooms 111 and 112 in the seminary.

This conference will help people come to a deeper understanding of God's concern for the environment. What is the biblical mandate for global stewardship? What is each person's responsibility and how does one fulfill that task? Speakers will discuss practical ways to take care of creation.

Speakers include Dr. Paul Metzger, director of New Wine, New Wineskins and assistant professor of theology and theology of culture; Dr. Brad Harper, professor of theology at Multnomah Bible College; Multnomah Biblical Seminary student Sara Koetje; Dr. Maarten Schreuder, an atmospheric scientist and ecologist; Mr. Peter Illyn, executive director of Restoring Eden; and Mr. Max Miller, attorney of environmental law. These participants will share expertise from their respective fields to help others understand the issues and take action.

The cost is a suggested $10 donation at the door. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. For more information, please contact Tracy Spitler at 503-251-6767 or visit
