The mission of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation ministry is to explore CSA's distinct contribution to the ongoing, nonviolent transformation of the world towards peace, justice and ecology. This work embraces the efforts of sisters, associates, co-workers and others who share the CSA vision. We live out the mission to bring about systemic change by using the lens of nonviolence to focus on the issues of women, children, health care, globalization (especially as it affects Latin America), seamless ethic of life.

ACT

The CSA motherhouse was designed to honor and accommodate the natural features that surround it including the spring-fed streams that run through the property. This summer, as construction began on the road near the springs, CSA advocated on behalf of the springs and adjusted landscaping to protect waters from run-off during building and roadway construction.

 

INTERCESSION

That we may take up our prophetic responsibility in this time of crisis to speak God’s truth to each other and to call one another into conversion and to ways of living within creation wisely, sustainably, justly, and reverently, we pray.
