Covenant of Earth Care
Our consciousness reveals that all of creation is connected as one. The story of creation reveals we are to be good stewards of the creation . As a people of faith, we commit to this stewardship through a renewed reverence for life and respect for the interdependent web of all existence. We honor our spiritual commitment to the care, support and defense of the balance between our individual needs and nature. We envision a world in which everything has intrinsic value and where all people are assured a secure and meaningful life that is ecologically responsible and sustainable. Together we can transform our individual congregational lives into acts of moral witness, discarding our harmful habits for new behaviors that respect this harmony and interconnectedness.
We declare our covenant with God to walk upon the Earthfor the greatest good of all creation .
