For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.
We believe God made humankind stewards of all creation in the Garden of Eden before the Fall. As stewards, we recognize how ecological crises impact many communities around the world—especially those which are already vulnerable. From forest fires to floods, the impacts of climate change are immediate, devastating and undeniable. Environmental crises contribute to social issues like food security, forced migration and even political conflict. There is a continued need for advocacy in caring for and protecting the Earth’s resources—including one another.
Bible study: Creation: A Home for All Creatures
This Bible study accompanies the video exploring the aspiration “Stewards and renews God’s creation: protects and sustains the earth; pursues justice for all”. It is commended for reflection in dioceses, parishes and other Anglican contexts across the country.
