Faith Climate Action Week
(Previously known as the Preach-In on Global Warming)
Faith Climate Action Week will be ten days in April during Earth Month and will focus on how we can take action to protect our climate. This year, we will find joy and rejuvenation in the natural world and reconnect to why we love and protect our planet.
Caring for Creation
The Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope and Justice social statement explains the ELCA’s teachings on ecology and the environment, grounded in a biblical vision of God’s intention for the healing and wholeness of creation. This statement provides a Christian understanding of the human role to serve in creation, and a hope rooted in God’s faithfulness to the creation from which humans emerge and depend upon for sustaining life. It provides a framework for understanding the human role in creation, the problem of sin and the current environmental crisis.
Caring for Creation expresses a call to pursue justice for creation through active participation, solidarity, sufficiency and sustainability, and states the commitments of the ELCA for pursuing wholeness for creation — commitments expressed through individual and community action, worship, learning, moral deliberation and advocacy.
