We at Holy Trinity are deeply concerned for the enormous spiritual challenge facing the planet—loss of biodiversity and increasing harm to God’s beautiful creation.
Our church and individual members have done much to address this challenge, including worship themes, physical plant upgrades and efficiencies, wind-sourced energy subscriptions, efficient car/bicycle use, and legislative advocacy. We continue to commit to these important actions.
However, these steps are not sufficient to match the looming crisis. Our youth particularly recognize individual actions alone are not enough and systemic changes are urgently needed.
In response to these concerns, Holy Trinity’s Caring for Creation group drafted a Statement of Urgent Concern for the Care of Creation, which the congregation approved in January, 2020.
