Care for God’s Creation

green-chalice-testThe Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. Out of our call to “do justice” (Micah 6:8), we strive to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom through living out our faith by caring for God’s creation. In keeping with this demonstration, a resolution concerning carbon neutrality was passed at the 2017 General Assembly, in which the Christian Church (DOC) committed to reducing our carbon pollution with the goal to become carbon neutral by the year 2030 and climate positive by 2035. From Hawaii and Washington to Ontario and Florida, and everywhere in between, Disciples congregations are caring for creation in unique and inspiring ways.

Our mission is to connect Christian faith, spiritual practice and creation consciousness in order to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom.

Eco-Justice Camp

July 26-31, 2020

Join us virtually (with potential in-person options) in the rich Southern Appalachian Mountain ecosystem at Christmount to explore profound connection between our spirituality and our care for all of creation! Participants will explore complex sustainability challenges and meet both churches and individuals engaged in environmental/social justice in their own communities. This journey, whether virtually or on-site, is about listening to stories, seeing impact firsthand and reflecting on empowerment in tangible ways across topics of food & faith, climate, pollution, health, race and reconciliation, and poverty.

We will take a contemplative look at systems and invite you all into seeking shalom with us, joining other groups/families in stimulating discussion, prayer, and brainstorming about how they are turning challenges into opportunities, how to re-frame our daily lived practices, and how to foster a fuller imagination for our world!
