Living on God’s Earth

This week’s earth-friendly living tip: Organize an eco-faith book group!

For many churches, the new program year begins this month. Can you organize a book group at your parish or in your community this fall to study the connections between faith and the environment? The more we learn, the more actions we will be able to take to protect God’s creation. Here are four suggested books, which you can also read on your own:

Episcopal Climate News quote of the week:

Christian churches around the world unite in celebration of the “Season of Creation” from September 1 to October 4. The joint website, http://seasonofcreation.org, includes statements and videos from faith leaders calling on Christians to worship our Creator and protect the good gift of creation. This week, we feature the statement from the current Archbishop of Canterbury, titular head of the Anglican Communion, to which the Episcopal Church belongs:

“In this Season of Creation, we celebrate God the Creator, we thank God for the extraordinary riches of his grace. But we also come in sorrow for the way we have defaced creation and misused it for our own ends. In this Season, let’s find again a true vision of what being made in the image of God, caring for creation can mean, and commit ourselves to action.” – The Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
