INTERFAITH CREATION CARE SOUTH METRO (ICCSM)

VISION:

We believe in a world where humanity lives in balanced relationship with all of God's creation, valuing and preserving our environment for the health and prosperity of future generations. We accept the responsibility to be good stewards, recognizing that actions that benefit some have consequences for all.

MISSION:

We act to restore a sustainable relationship between humans and the environment, which is the foundation of health and life for all.  We seek environmental justice for the poor and children of seven generations to come.  We use our sacred texts to provide the context for inspiring, informing, and encouraging our faith communities to action within and beyond the walls of our communities.  We rely on our shared values to transcend political and economic divisions and provide fertile ground for transformational conversations.  We inform and equip our communities to advocacy and action for solving the very serious problems of environmental destruction.  We educate and facilitate conversations to build support for sustainability policies at the local, national, and international levels.  We mentor and support new leaders of all ages to further our mission.  We appreciate and celebrate the faith that our Creator has provided all that we need.

  1. When I'm feeling blue about our climate and my children's future, it's great to be able to go to a meeting with the ICC group. They are working on solutions and the support and encouragement is amazing! Very spiritually uplifting :)
