Cited earlier, Creation Justice Ministries (formerly the National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Program) represents the creation care and environmental justice policies of major Christian denominations throughout the United States. They work in cooperation with 38 national faith bodies.
Creation Justice Ministries provides a resource called 52 Ways to Care for Creation which are weekly suggestions to make caring for creation part our daily work, and include monthly bulletin inserts (also available in Spanish).
Creation justice means "protecting, restoring, and rightly sharing God's creation...justice for all of God's creation, including the human beings who live in it." The concept as described here, is the same as "integral ecology," so much a part of Laudato Si'.
From the publisher: "In a wide-ranging and comprehensive analysis, based on decades of experience as an environmental research scientist, activist and Quaker, Jennie M. Ratcliffe explores the interconnected scientific, technological, economic, religious and psychological causes of our predicament and shows how the ecological crisis is, at its heart, a spiritual and moral crisis."
