Caring for God's Creation is an inherent part of religious life. From mountaintops to forests, green pastures to still waters, stars in the sky to lilies of the field, we experience the gift of Creation. With God's Earth experiencing environmental problems, many religious Americans are seeking to respond through their faith.
The National Religious Partnership for the Environment brings together a diverse alliance of faith institutions and leaders in order to bring voice and action on behalf of caring for God's Creation. Through NRPE's four partners we bring together 160,000 congregations in the U.S. to protect God's creation through worship, education, stewardship and public witness.

Praying and Advocating During COVID-19
As we practice social distancing and pray at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, faith organizations urged Congress to address the pandemic by putting people first. Religious groups also requested the Federal agencies suspend rulemaking during the pandemic and made recommendations for any relief packages. In addition, several global faith organizations called for an economy of life in the time of the pandemic. At the end of May, more than two dozen national faith organizations called for recovery packages from COVID-19 include environmental safeguards.
