In response to the announcement of the withdrawal of the USA from the Paris Climate Agreement, the First Presidency said:
“An Enduring Principle of Community of Christ, based on numerous insights in scripture, is Sacredness of Creation. This fundamental principle of our faith calls us to join with God as stewards of care and hope for all of creation. In Doctrine and Covenants 165:1d we are called to “Pursue Peace on and for the Earth.” Today and in the future, Community of Christ will be faithful to our calling to protect and heal our environment as a mission priority.”
“Pursue Peace on Earth”
We are called to restore Christ’s promise of peace through teaching and practicing nonviolent conflict resolution so we can help promote and pursue peace for all peoples and all nations across the globe.
