That All May Flourish

Amanda J. Baugh

Oxford University Press

The chapter explores two communities—a Unitarian women’s urban garden and a green mosque—to examine motivations and effects of both “mainstream” and “alternative” environmental practices. Both the gardening group and the members of the ecofriendly mosque enacted religious environmental projects through partnerships with a Chicago-based interfaith environmental nonprofit. As the groups combined principles of environmental stewardship and justice, along with interfaith cooperation, these projects seem to represent interfaith environmentalism at its best. But the chapter calls readers to acknowledge that discussions of human and earth flourishing must recognize the diversity among humans. Not all humans are accorded equal opportunities to flourish.
