This week’s ECN local-project spotlight features the Episcopal Earthkeepers Circle. According to a church press release, the Diocese of Minnesota received a $5,000 grant to “develop an online repository of sermon starters, sample sermons and ideas for creation care themed preaching.”
The sermon bank is coming soon. In the meantime, you can see the Episcopal Earthkeepers Circle’s page on the diocesan website here: http://episcopalmn.org/episcopal-earthkeepers-circle
They also have a Facebook group that Minnesotans and friends can join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/836531586367728/?fref=ts
Many thanks to Bishop Brian Prior and the diocesan staff and volunteers for their work — may other dioceses be inspired to launch similar projects!
Full disclosure: ECN’s new volunteer deputy editor was a member of the committee that awarded these grants. Both volunteer editors are now volunteers on the task force that will administer the next round of grants.
