This report is based on findings from a nationally representative survey – Climate Change in the American Mind– conducted by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication.
In his encyclical, "Laudato Si’: On Care of our Common Home,"Pope Francis establishes how we have mistreated the common home all people rely on, and the disproportionate impact climate change and ecological destruction has on the poor. Caring for God’s creation is the great moral challenge of our time.
In response to this challenge, the CMEC is launching a faith-to-action initiative, Congregations Restoring Creation, promoting the ethics, advocacy and behaviors of environmental sustainability as imperatives of the Christian faith.
We will focus on developing strong denominational “Green Action Teams” united around climate change, tying the relationship between the environment and spirituality, and assisting congregations to action through training programs, inspiration, educational materials, organizing and advocacy.
We aim to involve congregations in statewide environmental policy issues as well, including actively promoting legislation for the “40%” Renewable Portfolio Standard and supporting environmental advocacy in the 2016 Maryland legislative session.
Ultimately, Congregations Restoring Creation seeks to support churches in sustainability and advocacy, faithfully taking care of creation and our people.
