Green Faith: Resources for an Earth-Friendly Spirituality

The Presbyterian Church (USA)’s Book of Order lists “Faithful stewardship that shuns ostentation
and seeks proper use of the gifts of God’s creation” as one of the great themes of our tradition (G-2.0500). But how can Presbyterians today be better stewards of God’s creation? We’ve compiled a resource list of organizations, theologians, and writers to inspire and equip you in the work of creation care. Pictured right, volunteers from Temple Rodef Shalom and Immanuel volunteer in Immanuel’s Interfaith Community Garden:

Local organizations – 

National Capital Presbytery Earth Care Network

The Center for Spirituality in Nature

Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions

National organizations –

Presbyterians for Earth Care
