Welcome to Unity of Tampa EarthCare
Unity of Tampa’s EarthCare team is a mission team with the purpose of caring for our environment as part of our spiritual path. We follow the guidelines provided by Unity EarthCare Worldwide Ministries program and are a certified congregation. Our activities have included participating in Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful’s Adopt-a-Spot street cleanup, regular Clean City Day and Coastal Clean-up actions, partnering with other environmental organizations to provide films and lectures, adopting green practices in our church with regard to paper and plastic usage, and creating upcycled crafts to sell in the church bookstore.
Earth Care Covenant
Our reverence for nature is reflected in the EarthCare Covenant:
Our consciousness reveals that all of creation is connected as one. The story of creation reveals that we are to be good caregivers of the creation. As a people of faith, we commit to a renewed reverence for life and respect for the interdependent web of all existence. We honor our spiritual commitment to the care, support and defense of the balance between our individual needs and those of nature. We envision a world in which everything has intrinsic value and where all beings are assured a secure and meaningful life that is ecologically responsible and sustainable. We agree to transform our individual and congregational lives into acts of moral witness, discarding harmful habits for new behaviors that demonstrate our respect for this harmony and interconnectedness.
We declare our covenant with God to walk upon the Earth for the greatest good of all creation.
