Stewardship of Creation

Stewardship of Creation

Care and justice for all creation is a core value of The Episcopal Church.

Eco-justice ministries seek to heal, defend, and work toward justice for all God's creation and to respect the kinship and connection of all that God created through education, advocacy, and action. In order to create capacity in the church for environmental stewardship initiatives, and in response to Resolution A030 of the 78th General Convention, the Advisory Council for the Stewardship of Creation was appointed in 2016. A full list of members can be found here


A Word to the Church

Episcopal Bishops issue a letter urging ‘prayerful listening’ on race, environment, poverty

God calls us to listen to each other with increased attention. It is only with unstopped ears and open eyes that our hearts and lives will be changed. It is through the reconciling love of God in Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit that we and the earth itself will be healed.

Tell Congress to Protect Critical Environmental Programs!

Though the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement is a setback, advocacy on environmental issues can still have a big impact. Make your voice heard on climate issues and learn about the impact the appropriations process can have on our environment, economy, and health.

Our natural resources are carefully stewarded by U.S. government programs ranging from clean air regulations to climate change adaptation funding to investments in research and development for clean energy. Heeding our Episcopal call to promote environmental stewardship, join us in this important advocacy effort.
