Who wants to be in a relationship with you.

Creation Care

From The Episcopal Church website: https://episcopalchurch.org/creation-care/episcopal-vision

As a whole church, we have promised to place the care of God's Creation at the heart of our common life. Together, we have taken up church-wide action in order to safeguard the integrity of Creation and to sustain and renew the life of the Earth.

Below are goals and a vision for Care of Creation, developed  by the  Presiding  Bishop's Office and  leaders of the Advisory Council on Stewardship of Creation and in alignment with actions by the 79th General Convention.

Loving - Goal #1 - Create and sustain a network of Episcopalians dedicated to the care and protection of the whole Creation, especially by providing grants and  cultivating circles for Story Sharing among  practitioners in local and regional ministries.

Liberating - Goal #2 - Stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable victims of the impact of climate change - particularly women, poor people, and people of color - as part of seeking the liberation and flourishing of all God's people.

Life-Giving - Goal #3 - Set climate mitigation benchmarks as individuals and as a church, in order to live more simply, humbly, and gently on the Earth.
