“Everything we do must be seen through the lens of the environment. We are all called to exercise leadership in this area, prioritising the fifth mark of mission ‘to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth’, and without this being done wholeheartedly the other four marks lack credibility in today’s context.” – Bishop Nick Holtam, Church of England Environment Working Group paper, Nov 2019
