Eco-Justice: "the well-being of all humankind on a thriving Earth"
Four Theological AffirmationsFour interlocking affirmations provide the theological basis for our work. These broad statements about the nature of God's creation, and about faithful life and ministry, inform our work.
|God wills shalom for the world. |
The rich biblical concept of shalom seeks peace with justice on a thriving Earth. Shalom combines ecological sustainability with all forms of social justice -- economic, racial, restorative, etc. -- as expressions of God's love for all of creation.
|We live in a world of complex and interdependent relationships. |
Our interpersonal relationships are important, and so are our ecological and institutional relationships. The quality of all of those relationships has both practical and moral significance.
|Churches are called to be transformative of individuals and society. |
Churches that are faithful will make a real difference in the lives of their members, their communities, and in the world. Because of their ministries, individuals, institutions and societies will be transformed in their beliefs, values and behaviors.
|The world is limited -- and we find abundance within those limits. |
There are limits to what the world can provide for humanity, and what sort of wastes the world can absorb -- and humanity has passed those limits. Theologically and practically, we find abundant living when we discover how to live joyously and sustainably within what God has provided.
