This contribution is written as part of the quest for alternative economies, those that are ecologically sustainable. It focuses on the use of the "oikos" (home or household) metaphor as a tool to understand the relationship between poverty and the environment, and looks at the production of a particular theological document, The Oikos Journey. The theology that is constructed, termed oikotheology, is described. The implications of this theology for urban ministry are suggested.
