I. Integral Spirituality

A. System Theories of Ken Wilber present a more anthroposophist point of view. Seminaries on integral spirituality, initiated in Erlangen, 2007, (http://www.emergent-deutschland.de ; referring to Stefan Stangenberg, 2008, http://www.zellgemeinde-bremen.de) list some schedules, which show identification-images of several colours, in which ethics of evangelical movements can be settled. (Stangenberg, cit.op. Beck, Don E., “Spiral Dynamics. ibid, cit. op. Ken Wilber, “Theory of integral Spirituality”, pages 289, 308, 327, 348, 371, and 397).

B. The Transformation Process implemented by integral spirituality is supposed to give sustainable answers to the problems of climate change. The so called “green MEM” (ibid. page 4) can be found at information platforms like (http://www.moveGreen.de/index.php). We have to recognize, that Jesus-based belief sometimes is suspected to be old-fashioned (“blue MEM”, identification leaders: Billy Graham, Bill Hybels), so disadvantages may occur on these secular workplaces. After 9/11 the post-modern Christian spirituality is going to reconcile neighbourhoods and inner cities, where traditional church has lost ground.





II. Rainbow Network Communities

A. Rainbow networks, listed up by Andy Wolf, (http://andisperspective.typepad.com), http://www.snap.com/sosearch?query=Church+Planting&source=andisperspective.typepad.com&campaign=spasense&spa_key=dd8023bd6cf81942c89aa84dec2c79d6&spa_rkl=default&ssvid=bc1f83fa12fc1c8d61db0b20a777050c&sscat=religion&geo=DE&dfs=10.10 ) with worldwide mission ( http://worldmap.org/world.php ) see underestimation of worldwide crisis as one of the top ten mistakes of evangelistic outreaches and strategic mission. This leads to the conclusion, that Global Warming highly oppresses a suffering world, which is expecting justice and revelation. A strong belief in JESUS has to give practical answers in the mission fields.





B. Ori Brafman, and Rod A Beckström,(The Starfish and The Spider, http://tiefebene.wordpress.com/bucher/the-starfish-and-the-spider-2/) and Scot McKnight (“A Community called atonement”; http://tiefebene.wordpress.com/bucher/scot-mcknight-a-acommunity-called-atonement/ ) give some argumentation for decentred networks. They describe fast-moving and sustainable churches, networks and communities, who are able to solve problems in critical situations. This is discussed to make efforts on Christ-centred belief. The integration of environmental aliens, caused through migration could be handled easier this way.



III. Charismatic Movements

A. House-Churches: A modern form of monastery-like neighbourhood home cell groups have been described by Wolfgang Simson (Simson, Wolfgang, “Das 1X1 der Hauskirchen, ibid.”Häuser, die die Welt verändern”, Erzhausen, 1999). The same author in cooperation with Thomas Giudici (Thomas Guidici, “Der Preis des Geldes”, Brendow, 2005) hint on the importance to be free of materialistic bondages. This is important to solve the problems of over-population and inequity. House-Churches are strategically (DAWN international Network, Colorado Springs, since 1999. www.dawn.ch) doing this.

B. Praying movements

Others, organized in Christliches Centrum Ruhrgebiet (ChristianTeupe, 2007, http://teupy.blogspot.com/2007/07/alles-aus-liebe.html) lay domain on Praying and Fasting and contemplation to deal with the once realized dangers of climate change. TOS-Tübingen (www.TOS.info), with emphasis on human care, went back to the Celtic roots of Christhood in 2006. They visit old monasteries and transform it to new praying marches. On the other hand they build up tabernacles, according to Jewish messianic praise-centres (Arni Klein, “Emmaus way”, 2008; www.emmausway.org). They see a great potential in Israelian youth to solve ecological problems (which was proofed by Michael Succow, 2005 ref. on introduction; ibid, cit.op. essay 2) and have a vision for the advantages of messianic-based belief.

Based on reassurement in believing in Christ and the power of praying this can help to bind evil forces and prevent environmental diseases and accidents. This way, ecological crisis may come under the feet of JESUS.



Conclusion: If we are looking at the several trials to solve the problems, caused by Global Warming, we find some interesting links, the leading denominations may refer on.



In a private discussion with Alternative Nobel price- Winner Steve Gaskin,( Pennsylvania, on a 2006 congress in Munich, Germany) the United States of America are still demanding a Renaissance, like Europe had in the Middle Ages, when Karl the Great took Celtic Christian monks to strengthen the kingdom of God through a system of education based on the monasteries infrastructure.



To my mind, the catholic approach of monastery-like outreaches with modern mass media – like Fr. Richard Rohr’s internet cafe can show the right direction.

The UN-Climate Conference gave some rules for further actions on Global Warming. On my private secular, self-employed working place I am seriously concerned with the advantages and disadvantages of a belief based on JESUS. In fact, my belief inspires me to give practical solutions for the climate crisis.

Sustainable Land management Systems and ecological fundraisings ,like the ROSARY RIDGEBED ROUNDABOUT (http://www.perfspot.com/profil.asp?uid=C2EE2F51-16B6-4844-9DC1-E645008A9BFE ) , following the 2007`s Gleneagles advices (http://www.un.org/webcast/climatechange/highlevel/2007/pdfs/schwarzenegger.pdf
http://www.un.org/webcast/climatechange/highlevel/2007/pdfs/germany-orig.pdf) and recommended by Germanwatch (http://klimakompakt@germanwatch.de) , start up to be founded on Honest Scholarship about Jesus. These projects shall grow to the stage-up-phase in a manner to be estimated as “lasting, legal and loud”.

For the Celtic culture a modern philosophy should be created. This is my personal conclusion, leaded by words of GOD.

Introduction:

The main denominations of Christian religion are not able to fulfil the god given task to rule on earth and care for life. This was one result of the discussion about climate crisis; I am seriously concerned with (comp. essay part 2). (Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Michael Succow, Seminary at “Right-Livelihood-Award”, Munich, 2005, personal advice).

We are now going to look for new emerging churches, which may give better and sustainable solutions for this need. We concentrate on the advantages and disadvantages of a JESUS-centred belief on secular workplaces.



I. Emerging Church- :

A. Definition: Fr. Richard Rohr-Franciscan monk from New Mexico- who is also engaged in ecologic spirituality-gives a brief description of Emerging Church (http://ncrcafe.org.node/1413): “1) A recognition of social justice, Christianity has to be concerned about this world and suffering,

2) Openness to contemplation, and 3) Honest scholarship about Jesus.”



This is suggested to strengthen the advantages of a JESUS-centred belief to make efforts in justice in a suffering world with Global Warming.



B. In Germany, Emerging networks are guided by some spokesmen like Brian McLaren (“Everything must change”, Erlangen, 2007; http://www.emergent-deutschland.de/category/pocast/feed). He describes the climate crisis to be the leading “frame story” of nowadays. He comes to the conclusion, that the “JESUS-Story”, which fits all the other frame stories, is to be interpreted in a new way.



II. Advanced Emerging Church

A. According to these pre-dispositions and definitions, Stefan Stangenberg leads to a “Theory of Integrated Spirituality, based on research of Clare Graves, “Spiral Dynamics”, developed by Don E. Beck.

In South Africa the theories are proofed in solving problems of racism. On Philippines these strategies have been transformed into executive rules to build a new, three-fold infrastructure. (Michael Habecker, Ken Wilber- die integrale (R) EVOLUTION, FF/M, 2007 ) Terrorism and religious conflicts, caused by Global Warming, could be handled more carefully this way, because the integration of aliens, minorities and religious or racial groups is managed.

B. Ed Stetzer writes on categories of Emerging Church (http://missionalthoughts.wordpress.com/2006/05/03/ed-stetzers-emerging-church-categories/#cooliris). He is focussing on 1. Relevants, 2) Reconctructionists and 3) Revisionists. He hints on strong growing structures with decentralized leadership in Pennsylvania. The fast numerous increase is not necessarily successful in solving environmental problems, but the history of Pennsylvania shows, that communities with organic farming and ecological outreach earn political respect. Environmental migration (as in the late 60ies, when San Francisco earthquakes have been feared) can be transformed into settlements. This example is given to another 80 planned UN-projects.
