If you haven’t seen it yet, check out NCIPL’s success story map.
The stories you read are diverse in faith, demographics, geography, themes, and approaches. Each congregation responds to climate change in different ways — growing food for parishioners, growing food for neighbors, investing in energy efficiency, installing renewables, hosting educational series, and so on.
Many thanks and congratulations to the congregations that have already shared a story!
What has your congregation done? Something big, something small? From acknowledging the importance of Creation Care for the first time to installing solar panels, we want to hear what you’re up to. And, other congregants around the state want to hear about it as well. That is the purpose of this map — to lift up success stories and to inspire others to take action.
If your congregation is not yet on the map, we encourage you to make it a summer goal to sit down with the appropriate people and write up at least one story regarding something your congregation did — participated in the preach-In, hosted an environmental movie screening, installed CFLs or LEDs, whatever you’ve done, please share the good news.
