The Social Principles of the United Methodist Church proclaim that “All creation is the Lord’s, and we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it. Water, air, soil, minerals, energy resources, plants, animal life, and space are to be valued and conserved because they are God’s creation and not solely because they are useful to human beings.” To care for our common home and only home, we advocate for legislation that reflects our systemic commitment to ecologically sustainable policies and practices to protect all of God’s good creation (cf. Gen. 1:26-31, Matt. 6:26-30, Rom. 8:22-24).
