Our friends at Lutherans Restoring Creation have many excellent theological resources on caring for creation, including a sermon playlist, lectionary commentaries, ecological reflections on Luther's small catechism, and more! Check out their website here.

ELCA Social Teaching

The ELCA has social teaching that guides our vocation in the body of Christ. The ELCA adopted Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope and Justice at the 1993 churchwide assembly.

The ELCA writes that "Caring for Creation expresses a call to pursue justice for creation through active participation, solidarity, sufficiency and sustainability, and states the commitments of the ELCA for pursuing wholeness for creation — commitments expressed through individual and community action, worship, learning, moral deliberation and advocacy."

More recently, the ELCA is writing a social message on climate care. Discussion will occur throughout the late winter and at the April meeting of the ELCA church council. You can find out more here, including a summary of comments submitted on the original draft.
