Creation Care

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it;
for God has founded it on the seas and established it on the rivers.

Psalm 24:1-2.

Creation Care in the Episcopal Church is based on understanding ourselves to be stewards of what belongs, not to us, but to God. Stewardship of creation, therefore, demands that we “seek to heal, defend, and work toward justice for all God’s creation and to respect the kinship and connection of all that God created through education, advocacy, and action.” At St. David’s we take up the call to “tend the garden” by living out the commission of our Holy Patron, St David of Wales, “do the little things.” It only takes a little sun, a little rain, a little soil, and a little work to transform the world.
