H-IPL is an affiliate of Interfaith Power and Light, a national network of over 40 state chapters working to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all.

    Jewish and Christian Scriptures portray a wise Creator who called a good creation into being, filled with vibrancy, variety and beauty, and gave humans the vocation of “serving and preserving” the Earth.

    Islam’s Qur’an teaches that all the earth, and all its creatures, belong to God, and that humans may use but not waste earth’s gifts.

    Hindu Scriptures claim that the earth is our home, and its creatures our family.

    Unitarian Universalists affirm justice and compassion in human relations, the inherent worth of every person, and respect for the interdependent web of all existence.

    Read more creation care statements here.

    Our faiths maintain that destructive exploitation—whether of natural resources, human beings, or other creatures—harms life today and impoverishes future generations. We seek sustainable changes so that all—the poor, young, old, and the earth itself—may flourish.We are concerned about the Earth’s changing climate and believe we must act now, both individually and collectively, to reduce our environmental impact and protect the world’s poor and powerless.
