Caring for creation is an integral part of the Uniting Church’s long held commitment to social justice. Human existence is thoroughly dependent on the health of our surrounding environment. If the health of our natural systems declines, there are both immediate and delayed effects on the health and resilience of human communities. This is especially the case for poor agricultural communities who are already vulnerable and depend on the direct sustenance of their land and seas. Caring for the earth is also about caring for the poor.
