I recently read and enjoyed the book “Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony“. The author Richard Bauckham is an eminent Biblical scholar and theologian (see his wikipedia link and his own website).
His thoughts on the Environment can be found here [video] with his lecture at the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge. The seminar is entitled “Jesus, God and Nature in the Gospels”.
He also has a recently published book “The Bible and Ecology: Rediscovering the Community of Creation ” which should be worth checking out at some point.
We had an excellent family camping trip on Vancouver Island. This is where we stayed – Miracle Beach Provincial Park.
Vancouver to Miracle Beach [the route].
Among other things we had fish & chips in Campbell River, visited the Comox Valley Farmers Market, saw waterfalls, had some great pastries for lunch in the lovely village of Cumberland, but most of the time just played on the beach.
Here’s a slide show with some photos I took with my mobile phone (before the battery died!):
Alternatively the photos are on facebook, here.

Finally the local beer of choice: Red House Ale.
