Care of Creation

The Care of Creation work group believes that we are called to care for God's creation as a central part of our Christian faith and identity. The group was established in 2018 to:

  • explore life-giving ideas
  • share best practices within our synod, the larger church and the community
  • become part of the public and teaching voice of the church

 

The Care of Creation work group is part of The Bishop's Committee for Public Witness. For more information contact Don Schuld at donschuld@gmail.com or 651.491.2078.
