This year, General Convention — the legislative governing body of the Episcopal Church — passed 19 resolutions for the care of God’s creation. Each Tuesday, we’ll feature one here!
2018-A010: The Planting of “Paris Groves”
This resolution commends all Episcopal schools, camps and conference centers to make environmental stewardship and care of creation key components of formation for the next three years, and commends all 85 camps and conference centers to plant “Paris Groves” as a witness to the Paris Accord on climate change. Furthermore, every person received into the Episcopal Church or who reaffirms their Baptismal vows (as we all do at every Baptism) is encouraged to plant a tree in gratitude and reflect on the wonder and beauty of creation.
