Creation Care

"A crisis is a decision point, a time of judgement. We can choose to change our destructive and overly consumptive ways, or we can ignore the consequences of our actions and slowly steam like proverbial frogs in a soup pot. We still have some opportunity to choose, but that kairos moment will not last long. We have before us this day life and death. Which will we choose?"--Katherine Jefferts Schori, March 25, 2015

The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Washington are committed to promoting respectful care of God’s creation, and particularly to working against climate change and on behalf of climate justice. Follow the diocese’s activities by following the EDOW Environmental Network on Facebook.
