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 feature one here!

Commits the church to continued involvement in the United Nations Conference of Parties on Climate Change, encourages Episcopalians to follow the Paris Climate Accord by living lightly on the earth, and adopts the House of Bishops’ 2011 “Pastoral Teaching on the Environment” as the official position of the church.
