For some United Methodists, taking care of God’s creation is a biblical mandate.
“God's first word to Adam was to till and keep the earth,” pointed out the Rev. Josh Amerson, associate pastor at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church in Atlanta. “We humans have done exceedingly well at the tilling, but until recently the keeping has been overlooked.”
While Glenn Memorial is focusing on sustainability through practices like composting and recycling, Amerson said the congregation is eager to engage with environmental justice issues that will impact communities around the world.
