For the Love of Creation (FLC) is a group consisting of Canadian faith communities and faith-based organizations gathering under a unified banner to mobilize education, reflection, action, and advocacy for climate justice. And hoping to make a meaningful contribution in the next decade towards a sustainable future for all life on the planet.   

For the Love of Creation aims to engage people individually and in community, as congregations and organizations, all across the country in a climate initiative centered on three themes: theological reflection, local and congregational engagement, and political advocacy. Since the soft launch on Earth Day 2020, the FLC Working Group has been busy animating resources and actions in these areas, which will be detailed in the email updates. 

Here is the link to the earlier post on the diocesan website.

The plan is to send out regular (but not too frequent) updates and a website is in the works.

Here is the mailing list link.

Sign the e-Petition

Speaking into the current moment, shaped by both the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate emergency, For the Love of Creation has launched an e-petition calling on the Government of Canada to:

  • commit to reducing Canadian GHG emissions by 60 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, and invest in a just transition;
  • honour the rights of Indigenous Peoples;
  • commit equal support for climate change adaptation and mitigation measures in the Global South; and
  • respond to the pandemic in the Global South.

The petition is open for signatures until October 6. It is sponsored by Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, Member of Parliament for Beaches-East York.

Please take a moment to sign and share it widely with your networks. You can share it via Facebook here.
