Evangelical pastor seeks support for environmentalism

(THE MISSOULIAN) — Being a voice for the wilderness often leaves Tri Robinson feeling like a biblical voice in the wilderness.

“How do you get evangelicals to understand that caring for creation is not a liberal agenda, but a Christian agenda?” the retired pastor asked before a series of presentations in Missoula. “I see it as a sanctity-of-life issue. With climate change, the first to suffer will be the poor.”

Robinson founded the Vineyard Boise Church in Idaho and considers himself a evangelical political conservative. He came to Missoula on Friday to talk about his efforts to reconnect Christian religion with young people, in part through environmental issues.
