ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

(for the May 25/26 Bulletin)

One of the major causes of war according to the CIA is climate change. Our Christian faith-based perspective emphasizes that the poor are the most directly affected by these changes. So, environmental stewardship is not just about saving trees; it’s about saving people and preserving their dignity and ability to meet basic needs such as water, food and housing.
