Social action is alive and well in the UMC

Though my view is limited, I'd nevertheless wager that the vast majority of UMC churches aren't allowing the politics to affect their social action activities. That said, as a passionate proponent of Creation Care myself, it's important to remember that ultimately, social action is empty and meaningless if we fail to respect, honor and follow God's Word. To be clear I'm saying that social action sometimes has the tendency to distract us away from worshipping God -- the basis of which is found in Scripture.
If you've rolled your eyes while reading this comment, take a moment to consider where that's coming from, and whether your own politics prevent you from seeing clearly.
