"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

People of faith address the Creator's environment

With the covenant of the rainbow (Genesis 9:12), worshipers in major religions accept a spiritual connection with nature that was created and maintained by their Creator. From simple beginning steps to more substantial changes in lifestyle, people of faith can find ways to put faith and values into action every day. Every person has a sphere of influence-- large or small -- and what matters is not the scope, but the quality of that influence.

The National Religious Partnership for the Environment is an association of independent faith groups across a broad spectrum: the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Council of Churches U.S.A., the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, and the Evangelical Environmental Network.

Each of these partners in faith — in common biblical faith but honoring distinctive traditions — is undertaking scholarship, leadership training, congregational and agency initiative, and public policy education to confront today's issues of environmental sustainability and justice.

Together, these religious communities are focusing their resources on the universal effort to protect humankind's common home and well-being on Earth.
