In Defense of Creation

The United Methodist Church has called on the Council of Bishops to update its historic 1986 statement in opposition to nuclear weapons, called “In Defense of Creation: the Nuclear Crisis and a Just Peace.”  The Council has identified a trio of current “threats” to God’s good Creation:  pandemic poverty and disease, ecological degradation and climate change, and the world awash with weapons. The Council encourages you to participate in a survey to guide the development of the new document.  Your opinions will inform their study and writing so the document is as relevant, timely and powerful as possible. The survey will only take 3-4 minutes to complete, and feel free to share it.  Click here to participate in the survey.

If you would like to receive more information or updates on the initiative, please enter your name and e-mail address at the end of the survey.  If you have trouble accessing the survey, please contact Chuck Niedringhaus at
