God the Geometer. From the frontispiece of the Moralisee Bible.Ecumenical statements and actions on climate change are rooted in the Bible which teaches the wholeness of creation and the centrality of justice in the Christian message. God creates human beings and calls humanity to care for the earth (Genesis 2:15), to be stewards of creation. The God of the Bible, at the same time, is a God of justice who cares for the most vulnerable ones: the poor, the orphan, the widow, the stranger (Deuteronomy 10: 18 – 19). Bearing the marks of human sin, “creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God” (Romans 8:19).

The work for climate justice is a response from the churches to the challenge of climate change.
