The Pledge to Care for Creation is part of living as the Jesus Movement. It’s a promise to protect and renew this good Earth and all who call it home. It’s a promise to share our stories, stand with those who are most vulnerable, and live more gently on the Earth.

  • During Lent, reflect on the Pledge alone or in a group, with the help of the Reflection Guide
  • During Lent, decide on your 3 commitments to be more LOVING, LIBERATING and LIFE-GIVING in relation to Creation
  • By Easter Sunday (April 21), take the Pledge, including your specific, personal commitments
  • On Earth Day (April 22), the day after Easter, let’s celebrate at least 1,000 pledges
  • All year long, keep your specific commitments to be more loving, liberating and life-giving

The pledge and reflection guide are at: https://www.episcopalchurch.org/creation-care/pledge
