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!
2018-D053: “Stewardship of Creation with Church-Owned Land”
Encourages dioceses and congregations to use undeveloped church-owned land for agriculture, biodiversity conservation, green burials, habitat conservation, and natural carbon sequestration to mitigate climate change. Also directs Executive Council to create an inventory of all church-owned properties and to develop model processes to assist dioceses, parishes, and other communities in this work.
