UCC Creation Covenant

The SWC Executive Board has voted to affirm and live out a Creation Covenant and calls upon our covenant partners to discover ways to live this out more fully. 

This covenant was written by a diverse group of UCC members who attended the national UCC's climate and environmental justice "Leaders in Koinonia" (LinK) event in Cleveland in April 2013.

The Covenant has seven detailed requests. The most urgent item on our list (#3) has to do with four "environmental" Synod resolutions. We do hope for strong leadership from the conference ministers and the conference delegations in passing these statements of moral witness.  

The final three items on the list look at ways of deepening and broadening the UCC's theological reflection and practical action with regard to climate change, environmental justice and ecological sustainability.
