In June, Pope Francis delivered his impactful encyclical on climate change. “The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,” Francis wrote, blaming consumerism, overconsumption, and dependence on fossil fuels on the growing environmental problem.
To continue with his mission, Pope Francis announced a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1.
Climate change “represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day,” the pope wrote. “Its worst impact will probably be felt by developing countries in coming decades.”
This is a collective opportunity for the Christian body to take action. God has entrusted humankind to act as stewards of this planet. Psalm 115:16 says, “The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to mankind.”
God has given this earth to us, and as the Earth’s caretakers we are to protect the land, animals, and vegetation for the common good of all. The Bible is clear that it’s our responsibility to care for the Earth the way God would care for it. This means that we are to use the earth but not abuse it.
Let’s continue being good stewards through prayer, advocacy, and conservation. Join World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition in the fiscal year 2020 budget.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
