LDS Church Unveils Massive Online Creation Care Library

By path2positive

The Mormon Church may not be stealing news headlines when it comes to climate change, but that doesn't mean they haven't been active in the creation care movement. Over the past three years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has compiled an online library of resources to engage people on climate change and sustainability. This past summer, their campaign, 'Our Home,' produced and distributed a series of videos to educate and inspire Mormons and non-Mormons to care for God's creation through acts of sustainable living.

The relationship between LDS communities and Climate Science has, for the most part, been rather cohesive. Dr. Samuel Smith explained in his recent article for the Mormon Transhumanists Association, Mormonism: A theology even a secularist could like:

"There has never been a war (at worst a skirmish or two) between science and religion in Mormonism. The fundamental position is that truth is truth, all truth is of the same kind, no matter the source, so there should never be disagreement between scientific and religious truth."

Smith's conviction about Mormonism and climate care is further validated with burgeoning movements such as, The Mormon Environmental Stewardship Alliance, which brings Mormon leaders together to act for the climate through educational programs.

The Growing Library of LDS Stewardship and Conservation Resources

By Peter A. for LDS Earth Stewardship 

Over the past three years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has created a growing online library of resources related to environmental stewardship and conservation topics. These readily accessible tools are valuable in learning about the doctrine, themes and messages from the LDS standards works, reviewing important statements and inspirational messages by Church leaders, highlighting practical means to put faith-based environmental values into action, and teaching and instructing both Church members and those outside of our faith about this important topic.

This past summer, the Church—using video clips provided by Church members across the globe—produced the short but inspiring video, “Our Home.” The video is available on the YouTube Mormon Channel and can also be downloaded to a computer, smartphone or tablet from the official church website above. This video is an excellent supplement to a Family Home Evening discussion, a youth or adult Sunday School lesson, or part of sharing a gospel message through social media.
