Take Heart!

Food, Faith, Animals and Environment

Religious communities, especially Christians, Jews and Muslims, are getting organized to take a stand on agricultural practices, given that faith and food are closely linked.

For example, the Religious Working Group on the Farm Bill, a national coalition of more than a dozen religious organizations, is lobbying Congress for legislation to help small farms, the National Catholic Rural Life Conference is helping congregations and universities in the Midwest buy local produce from family farmers, and environment-minded Jews are asking the leaders of Conservative Judaism to rewrite their kosher certification rules to incorporate ethical concerns about workers, animals and the land.

It’s encouraging to see religious leaders and followers taking a stand for God’s Creation, since taking care of our health, the environment and animals is being obedient to God. While alleviating animal suffering through less abusive farming is a step toward a harmonious and peaceful world, a greater and more profound God honoring change would be attained if we stopped exploiting animals and the environment for our benefit.
