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?" -- Katharine Jefferts Schori, former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, The Climate Change Crisis

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. Sign up for the Episcopal Creation Care newsletter and follow the diocese’s activities by following the EDOW Environmental Network on Facebook. 

Liturgical Resources

Formation Resources

  • Engage with these ecumenical weekly devotions during the Season of Creation as an individual, a household or faith community.
  • Looking for a way to connect to households?  Consider sending home a Creation Care box with a Godly-Play creation story set, a packet of seeds to plant, a season of creation prayer card, and a trash bag with the invitation for households to pick up trash in a local park.  (Thanks to Sarah Allred for the ideas!)
  • This Resource Guide is chock full of ideas for preaching, prayer, and community engagement.
