At Eliot, the belief that care for creation is a divinely commissioned activity forms the core of our environmental philosophy. We recognize that the Earth and its resources are gifts entrusted to us, and it is our duty to act as responsible stewards. This perspective compels us to go beyond mere acknowledgment of environmental issues; we actively engage in initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to the well-being of our planet. Our understanding of this divine commission inspires us to take action both within and beyond the confines of our church building.
Environmental stewardship is not limited to the walls of a church; it encompasses the world around us. At Eliot, we embrace this understanding wholeheartedly. We are dedicated to making a positive impact on the planet through various initiatives. From implementing sustainable practices within our church operations to organizing community clean-up events, we strive to reduce our ecological footprint and preserve the natural beauty that surrounds us. We recognize that small actions can lead to significant change, and we are passionate about inspiring others to join us in our mission.
Our commitment to environmental stewardship extends beyond our own congregation. We actively seek opportunities to collaborate with other organizations, both secular and faith-based, to address environmental challenges collectively. By engaging in interfaith dialogues and partnering with local environmental groups, we aim to foster a sense of shared responsibility for the well-being of our planet. Through these collaborations, we hope to inspire a broader movement of environmental consciousness and action, transcending religious and cultural boundaries. At Eliot, we firmly believe that caring for creation is a universal calling, and by working together, we can create a sustainable future for generations to come.
