United Methodist Women’s national office has made climate justice one of its four social justice priorities. To welcome and support environmental justice advocates like you, we work to provide practical, theologically sound tools to guide and inspire your work. The tools were developed to delve through deep intersectional injustices between gender, racial, economic and climate injustice.
United Methodist Book of Discipline
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. God has granted us stewardship of creation. We should meet these stewardship duties through acts of loving care and respect. (Social Principles, ¶ 160)
United Methodist Women calls for sound stewardship of the earth and environmentally friendly lifestyles that preserve creation for the benefit of present and future generations.
