God created the earth and deemed it good (Gen. 2:4b-9) and in Christ all things in heaven and on earth were created and are held together (Col. 1:15-20). As followers of Christ, we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves and care for God’s creation. We share a common responsibility for the stewardship of God’s good earth, as a matter of justice, so that it can sustain all species, peoples, and future generations.
Today, Disciples of Christ are called to bring our leadership to the moral challenge of climate change. Damage to our climate puts the health of our children and elderly at risk, hurts the poorest among us the most, and harms God’s creation. Read more about the Resolution here.
