There are, thankfully, many fine organizations that are working to help turn the tide of the destruction of the earth and to restore creation. Many of them make a real difference on a daily basis, and are deserving of support. However, one that is truly exceptional is Creation Justice Ministries.
I believe that Creation Justice Ministries is one of the most effective and valuable environmental action groups that there is. There are some unique aspects to their work that make me grateful to be involved in their work as a donor.
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.
