Abilene Christian University's global stewardship task force will conduct a forum tomorrow, April 19, at 3 p.m.

The global stewardship task force formed in the fall of 1998. The group was composed of members from different academic disciplines.

After receiving a grant from the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) to the Coalition for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), the committee was commissioned to formulate a brief document on the nature of Christian stewardship.

Over a period of one year, the group sought to address the issue of environmentalism from a Christian perspective.

Four people played a crucial role in crafting a document: Dr. David Dillman, professor of political science; Dr. Jim Cooke, associate professor of industrial technology; Carolyn Thompson instructor of foreign languages; Dr. Paul Morris, professor of physics; and Frederick Aquino, instructor of graduate Bible and ministry. The document can be found at the following Web site: http://emc2.acu.edu/christian_stewardship

Tomorrow's forum is an opportunity for the public to learn from and inquire of the committee's work on the environment.

The group will focus on some of the following questions: What is the rationale for Christian stewardship? How are Christians to serve as responsible stewards of the environment? What are some practical suggestions for implementing responsible stewardship in our own community?

How can Christians integrate global stewardship across the curriculum?

The forum will take place in the Living Room of the McGlothlin Campus Center on ACU's campus.
