The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it. Psalm 24:1
Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon's Creation Justice programs connect, inform, inspire, and empower people, congregations, and religious institutions to work for the care and renewal of the earth. We foster an awareness that care for creation is integral to a life of faith. Places of worship provide a place for people to consider how theology, public policy and practice can connect around stewardship of the earth.
Our current projects include Oregon Interfaith Power & Light.
