Our Call to Preserve God’s Creation


Carrie Barbee to speak about St. Paul’s Green Faith initiative during education hour

St. Paul’s Church is committed to conservation, sustainability, and environmental justice to fulfill our ultimate mission of embodying the healing presence of God’s love to one another, our city and the world. We will support environmental justice in our community through outreach that personifies Christ’s love and Servanthood. We will cultivate environmental stewardship and the growth of a spiritual consciousness toward the environment through spiritual and theological formation grounded in scripture, reason, the Episcopal tradition, and integrated with life experience. We will celebrate environmental diversity that rejoices in our differences and our unity in Christ. With this statement, St. Paul’s launched its Greenfaith certification effort to become a green parish. But why are we seeking this certification? Carrie Barbee will discuss Our Call to Preserve God’s Creation.
