Grounded in our faith, our group of Green Stewards works toward educating ourselves and others to encourage positive environmental actions within our parish and the wider community. Our efforts have included presentations at adult forums and a family day, Exploring Nature. Our parish also includes a large beautiful campus with a labyrinth, bee hives and butterfly garden. For many years our clergy have supported a special time for Blessing of the Animals and more recently have added times for Holy hikes, outdoor worship, and picnics.
We recommend connecting to the resources of the national Episcopal Church and the information under Creation Care. Also, One of our stewards coordinates a Facebook Page, Christian Care for the Environment, to highlight a wide range of issues and events and to provide reference articles for those who wish to explore these topics. In the spring our church will have several Holy Hikes and celebrate world Labrynth Day on May 1 with walkers at 1:00. At any time you could try the Eco-challenge Created by Project Drawdown. A family-friendly way to learn and commit to changes.We are also considering watching the film PurePlant Nation and hosting the creator on Zoom for continued conversation on healthful eating.
