This chapter brings together work on environmental thought in Neo-paganism, Unitarian Universalism, and Islam in an exploration of the complexities and nuances of the subjects’ relationship to flourishing and technology. Human flourishing, for Pagans, would require the flourishing of other life as well, and those interviewed brought varied and sometimes competing views of technology and flourishing. The Unitarian gardeners viewed technology with some degree of suspicion as well. Members of the green mosque, on the other hand, seemed more interested in using technology to help improve their environmental practices to align with a larger earth flourishing. Despite some similarities, among the groups, the chapter points out the very real impediments to interfaith dialogue and collaborative work between monotheist and polytheist groups.

Keywords:   Interfaith dialogue, monotheism, polytheism, technology, Chris Klassen, Amanda J. Baugh
