Eco-Faith: Creating and Sustaining Green Congregations

Jpg cover image ecofaith 
Recently I became aware of a book written by a Presbyterian who is committed to environmental stewardship.  Dr. Charlene Hosenfeld, a clinical psychologist from Hawaii, is the author of Eco-Faith: Creating and Sustaining Green Congregations.  This book can act as a reference guide for congregations that are interested in working to care for God’s creation.

The book provides educational information on environmental issues and offers specific ideas and resources for churches to work on environmental stewardship.  In addition to action steps, the book shares success stories from faith communities throughout the country that are working to care for God’s earth.  The would serve as a helpful tool for churches at any stage of earth care, and for churches working toward an Earth Care Congregation certification.

The church that Dr. Hosenfeld attends in Hawaii is involved in caring for creation.  The church celebrates Earth Day in worship, has held a solar fair to showcase alternative energy options, and has undertaken many other greening projects.
