Firstly, Creation Justice Ministries does its work as a common act of faith. While for some, environmental action is primarily a practical or ethical matter, for the Creation Justice community, saving the earth is clearly an act of faith.Being a part of work that brings together expressions of faith is especially important; we cannot remain separated in our efforts if we truly want to make a difference.
Secondly, Creation Justice Ministries understands that the work of justice is integrated. It's not a choice between saving the planet or saving people, it is one inseparable act of justice.
Finally, the resources Creation Justice Ministries produces are both practical and inspiring. They help make it more possible for me to integrate my environmental action with my daily life and faith. The materials that are developed and shared are always of the highest quality.
I support Creation Justice Ministries because they do a great job at keeping the work of creation justice before the Church and people of faith as an essential act of the faith.
The primary reason I am a monthly donor is that it enables me to give more to Creation Justice Ministries than I would be able to give all at once. Simply put, giving monthly helps me be more generous.
I also understand how helpful it is to an organization to receive support throughout the year. Even in modest amounts, having a steady level of gifts makes it possible for the staff to focus on the mission the Creation Justice community seeks to accomplish.
Fifty years ago, I was in Junior High school when the very first Earth Day was observed. I was so excited to be part of that effort. I arranged to get a refrigerator box and sat with it in the parking lot behind my school to collect recyclables. No one came to put anything in my box, but it was the beginning of a commitment for me that has lasted my whole life. I am so grateful that Creation Justice Ministries is a part of that journey now, helping me to make a difference through my gifts.
