Report and Recommendations on Limited Water Resources and Takings with Study Guide (2004)

This resolution affirms that the “issues of water rights and regulatory takings are exceedingly complex.” It also affirms that the “spirit of love and justice and the creation of humans in the image of God that give foundation to rights are God-given.” Th e report, however, reminds the church that rights are “limited by the community’s responsibility to promote the common good and to restrain those who seek individual gain at the expense of others and the community as a whole.”
