CREATION CARE TOUR

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Location: Bangladesh
Dates: Coming in 2016!

In North America, concern about environment degradation is important to us, but isn’t usually part of our daily lives. But not everyone has this luxury. Environmental deterioration is clear and pressing in the lives of the world’s poorest people.

People who live in extreme poverty subsist on the crops they can grow from the marginal land relegated to them by more prosperous citizens. Their lives truly depend on the health and productivity of their environment.

Because 81 percent of Bangladesh’s mostly rural population lived on less than US$2 a day last year, it’s a stunning example of the need for strategic action in caring for creation.

Believers in Jesus Christ have a unique role to play as stewards of creation because we believe that “our world belongs to God” and we honor him with our management of it.

Do you want to find out what the church is doing to better care for creation?
Do you want to increase your capacity and influence in environmental action?

Join World Renew's Creation Care Tour to Bangladesh this spring!
