Christian concern for the environment is shaped by the Word of God spoken in creation, the Love of God hanging on a cross, the Breath of God daily renewing the face of the earth. We of the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are deeply concerned about the environment, locally and globally. As members of this church and as members of society, we are called to care for the earth as a profoundly spiritual matter.
