The Bible is full of nature imagery, from the Psalms to Jesus’ mandate to “consider the lilies.” Environmental stewardship is not only about enjoying the beauty of nature, but also about caring properly for what we have been given by God. Christian author and environmentalist Scott Sabin writes, “I am an environmentalist because I am a Christian.”

For too long, the environment has been a politically divisive topic. Increasingly, however, Christians of all political persuasions are realizing the importance of ensuring that future generations will be able to enjoy God’s creation.

The MCC U.S. Washington Office advocates for government policies that promote sustainability and responsible stewardship.
