Their appreciation for God’s beautiful places and spaces is rooted in a belief that God has entrusted us all with stewardship of the land. In their letter they reference Leviticus 25, The land shall not be sold in perpetuity for the land is mine; with me you are but aliens and tenants. Throughout the land that you hold, you shall provide for the redemption of the land.
Through reflection, they noted that protection of God’s lands as wilderness and access to the gifts of the land are needs that must be met in our use and care of God’s earth.
The Eco-Justice program, in keeping with the reflections of Montana’s pastors, have developed a faith statement on public lands that reflects the importance of Creation and its bounty.
Please sign the statement and join Montana pastors in speaking out about the beauty and importance of the wondrous display that is God’s Creation.
