Caring for creation, and all people

Caring for creation, and all people by Isaac S. Villegas is an article published in Mennonite World Review which focuses on the connection between creation care, and compassion for the global south. Taking inspiration from Article 21 of the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective, which states that “as stewards of God’s earth, we are called to care for the earth and to bring rest and renewal to the land, and everything that lives on it;” the article points out the ways in which the negative environmental actions of those in the Global North adversely affect the lives of those in the Global South. The primary cause of this effect is climate change, which the author believes should inspire the Mennonite church to act on the issue.
