Share your story
Many Presbyterian churches are making environmental stewardship part of their ministry through worship, education, facilities and outreach projects that respond to our call to till and keep the garden. Read some of their stories. If your church has a story to share, please email it to Rebecca Barnes-Davies.
I'm a deacon at Austin Heights Baptist Church in Nacogdoches, TX. Many in our church have been actively involved in our Earth Care ministry which has included both supportive and active roles of non-violent resistance to the Keystone XL pipeline which involves our county, particularly a nearby county school. The production of energy from tar sands has proved to be both hazardous and destructive to the environment, and we are looking for an appropriate way to frame the issue in religious and spiritual terms. We are thinking about encouraging churches throughout the US, particularly middle America, to consider a peaceful, prayerful and dignified march or prayer vigil, perhaps sometime in the Fall. If your organization or any participating churches would be interested or have any similar plans, please contact me via email or by telephone (936)554-1622. We are convinced after much study, further pursuit of dirty fossil fuel will bring an environmental disaster, and only God and His Children in concerted effort can affect change. Prayerfully, Joe Richardson
