ECOLOGY IN THE EYES OF CHURCH
ECOLOGY IN THE EYES OF CHURCH
On the 20th of March the guest of the YSU Faculty of Law Environmental Law Resource Centre was a priest.

The lecture was read by the Vice-inspector of Vazgenian Spiritual Seminary of Sevan Priest Minas Martirosyan. YSU Environmental Law Resource Centre with the help of our guest tried to talk about environmental problems from the viewpoint of the Armenian Apostolic Church, in the language of the church.

The discussion began with a prayer. Father Minas briefly, but presented in detail a number of Christian religious symbols and ceremonies, telling that God created man so that he could use the nature, but at the same time, loved and cared about her. Man matrons in nature.

Current environmental crisis is the result of a spiritual crisis. The humanity faced this crisis because it has gone away from God and his Testaments. A person ceased to be a bridge linking the nature and God,- said the priest and offered a spiritual prescription to avoid the ecological crisis: We need to repent and seek opportunities to move closer to God and become like him.
Father Minas gave the center the book Ecology and Theology, which presents the issue in a more detailed way. The book was published with the assistance of the WCC (World Congress of Churches) Armenian Fund Round Table and ICCO-Global Ministries of the United Protestant Churches in The Netherlands.

Director of YSU Environmental Law Resource Centre Aida Iskoyan invited the priest to read several lectures with the help of which students will be provided with an opportunity to consider the man-nature relationship also from the spiritual, religious dimension. Father Minas had accepted the offer with pleasure.
