One of our project partners — Lutherans Restoring Creation — has helped inspire an excellent guide for relgious congregations — or most anyone working toward sustainability at the community level.
Written by Kristi Holmberg and Callie Mabry, two interns at Luther College in Decorah, IA, “Cultivating Hope — Greening Churches Guide” covers a wide range of topic areas on stewardship of land, water and air, plus several examples of community action at work.
Holmberg and Mabry compiled the Guide this summer from their work with First Lutheran and Good Shepherd as well as several other churches in northeast Iowa.
It is richly illustrated with excellent photos, stories resources and more. It also includes Bible studies and Sunday School activity suggestions.
You can download the Guide by clicking on this link, and share it with others in your congregation.
