Care for Creation – Something All Christians Can Believe In
Because I was out of town, I got a little behind on postings, and even missed Earth Day. So, since we should be concerned about the earth and all who live there more than one day a year, there will be several postings in regards to Care of the Earth.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the United Methodist Church (UMC) marked Earth Day 2012 with the release a joint statement on the Eucharist and the environment. The statement, Heaven and Earth are Full of Your Glory, affirms that both Methodists and Catholics believe their celebration of the Eucharist helps them to see God’s glory in all of creation and therefore leads to greater care for the environment.
