Margaret Miller

Margaret Miller has travelled and worked in different parts of the world, which has left her loving the world’s beauty… and terrified for its future. She finds the process of essay writing keeps her somewhat sane in the midst of it all. Her studies have led her to inspirational teachers of ecotheology and biblical studies and their influence continues to infuse her thinking and writing. She presently lives in Vancouver, where she cares for an elder and works for an environmental non-profit that protects and restores local habitats.
