The Caring for Creation Pledge

Today we humans are changing the chemical composition of the atmosphere. We are fiddling with the planet's natural thermostat-- poking at the climate system with a long, sharp, carbon-tipped stick, and then acting surprised every time the weather bites back. And the weather is biting back with increasing frequency and ferocity. We are the volcano, conducting an experiment that's never been done before-- on a planetary scale, on the only home we have: God's home. 

As part of reading Caring for Creation, I want to personally invite you to sign The Caring for Creation Pledge, let's walk together as disciples of Christ faithfully following God's call to be good stewards of his creation, and taking prudent action to help the church, our fellow conservatives, and all of God's children take up the responsibility to be good stewards of creation. 

The Caring for Creation Pledge 

1. I Pledge to Keep an Open Mind- and Speak Up: Join the Evangelical Environmental Network as we weigh on policies that protect human life, tackle climate change, and encourage entrepreneurship, innovation, and responsible stewardship in the realm of business and at the city, state, and federal level.

2.  I Pledge to Take Action at Home and in Church: Learn how to take day to day actions that incorporate Christian teaching and living within the realm of stewardship for yourself, your family, and your church. 

3. I Pledge to Support a Price on Carbon: Individual and corporate actions are important and at EEN we do our part to encourage both individual stewardship, and the ingenuity of the individual to create positive change, but public policies need to support these behaviors. That's why we favor a price on carbon. 

4. I Pledge to Acknowledge That This Isn't a 'Liberal Issue:' We can have a healthy respect for science while embracing our faith- and protecting the sanctity of human life on our earthly home. Climate science shouldn't be hijacked by political activist. Organizations advocating a conservative, commonsense approach to creation care and clean energy are already springing up, offering pragmatic solutions that don't grow government but rather stimulate the marketplace to invent the new tools and technologies we're going to need to adapt and thrive.

    I am signing to encourage education for those affected by the false hood of extreme right thinking in that has permeated and lied to the religious community during the past two decades.

    Jesus taught the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and mind. Followed by to love our neighbours as ourself. Taking personal & collective responsibility for looking after the environment must be one of the practical ways one needs to do to fulfil both commands. Way to go EEN, may the wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit continue to light your journey ahead. In Jesus name. Amen.
