Revised Social Principles reflect increased attention to creation care

 The Revised Social Principles include expanded content on the need for Christians to protect and care for all God’s creation. These changes come at a time when the impact of global climate change is being felt more and more around the world.

One of the most notable changes in the document involves the title of the first section, which was revised from The Natural World to Community of All Creation. The section is divided into two subsections titled Creation in Peril and Stewardship of Creation.

“Historically, we have tended to perceive ourselves as somehow apart from creation. The old language talks about our responsibility for the natural world as though we are not a part of it. In the new document we are setting ourselves more within the community of all creation to show our interdependence with the earth,” said Hill.
