This page is a collection of stories that have been printed on this blog about our PCUSA certified Earth Care Congregations and other earth-caring congregations. You can also find these stories through clicking various categories on the right sidebar menu (for instance if you are looking for “food” or “climate” or “education” stories about churches). However, this list seems somewhat easier to navigate if you are looking for a particular church and location, without scrolling through the 20 some pages of “church earth care stories,” page by page).
