Episcopal Resources for Stewardship of Creation

Hello everyone,

There are many dioceses and other organizations doing great things with environmental stewardship. No need to re-invent the wheel when we can use some of what's already out there. For example:

*Click here to go to the home page for The Diocese of Alabama's Task for the Stewardship of Creation. Particularly look at the Spiritual Resources, Educational Materials and Links.

*On the website of the Episcopal Ecological Network is a page of links and contacts for Diocesan and Parish Environmental Stewardship Groups all over the Episcopal Church. The EpEN website also has great liturgical resources, and lots of other great stuff.

*The Diocese of Arizona's Nature and Spirituality program has a document of Green Stewardship Suggestions and a form to figure out your Family Carbon Footprint.

*The Regeneration Project is an interfaith ministry devoted to deepening the connection between ecology and faith. One of their primary campaigns is Interfaith Power and Light, which has mobilized a religious response to global warming in 30 states.

*The Diocese of Southern Ohio launched a campaign to replace all incandescent bulbs in all 95 churches throughout the Diocese with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), that use 75% less electricity and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Read about it here.

And this is just a few. Add your own as you find them!


  1. Great links Mike. I put them in the sustainable link box on the right for easy access. You can do the same thing. After a while we will have a great collection!

  2. One way we can improve the environment for our parishioners is to eliminate the use of incense. The smoke of it triggers asthma attacks that can last for days in sensitive people. We pollute the air of our churches just as much as if we allowed smoking or leaf burning in them.
