There are five distinct areas of focus concerning creation care.
Reduce, reuse, recycle! With so much waste generated by our modern lifestyles, we place an unsustainable burden on Creation. Focus on encouraging our community to reduce waste and pursue a lighter, more sustainable lifestyle.
As large-scale agriculture and suburban sprawl has become the norm, the diversity of plant and animal species has collapsed dramatically, waterways have languished, and indigenous plants are losing out to invasive species across our community. Focus on reestablishing biodiversity to develop indigenous habitats and help struggling species flourish yet again.
Although large-scale agriculture has demanded ever higher yields and pest resistance, the use of synthetic herbicides and pesticides in our farming has created countless negative carry-over effects which influence humans and Creation alike. Focus on promoting organic farming techniques to restore soil health, increase yields naturally, and encourage ordinary people to rediscover the joys of growing their own food.
A heartbreaking outcome of humanity’s neglect of Creation is the suffering and pain inflicted on both wild and domesticated animals. Work to restore the relationship between humanity and animals while advocating for afar more conscientious posture in the ways we interact with our fellow creatures.
Overreliance on fossil fuels has become one of the chief contributors to climate change, to polluting the Earth, and to creating undue hardships on struggling communities worldwide. Promote and encourage the use of renewable energy sources to help our community free itself from a dependence on those sources which hurt the planet.
