The White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships addresses key social justice issues. Currently, caring for creation is not among the office's priorities. Understanding that creation care is a moral, spiritual and social justice concern, Renewal is urging this office to make creation care a national priority. Please support this call by signing Renewal's petition to Mr. Joshua DuBois, director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. (Renewal's online and postcard petition is in conjunction with "The Green Awakening Tour," an 8-week, cross-country tour to over 30 Christian colleges! For information, check out our website @ "Now is a momentous time for the faith community; the planet is in crisis and creation care is a priority. As a young Christian, I am doing my part to heed God's call to: - Love my neighbor as myself - Value and protect all life - Care for God's creation Environmental degradation is harmful to life –whether it is a lack of clean water or the negative impacts of toxic pollution or our reliance on fossil fuel and the effects of climate change. Deteriorating ecosystems contribute to unhealthy people and communities. We, as Christian youth, are looking to our country's leaders to take action on these issues. As President Obama's point person for the faith community, I urge you to make the good stewardship of all of God's creation a national priority. Specifically, I urge you to call for a summit of US religious leaders to address today's most challenging threats to our environment."
