Co-Preaching for Creation - Kate Nelson & Peter Ilgenfritz
Clergy and lay people often have many opportunities to preach on behalf of God’s creation. The two members told personal stories of their relating with the natural world, and the pastor poetically wove the stories together. Here is a portion from the end of the sermon:
Following The Pope - Derek Eisel
One of the biggest impacts for Derek’s parish has come directly from the Pope, who “has been very forward-thinking on the environment. The kind of examples he’s starting to set, and bringing global warming as a moral issue, has brought attention that hasn’t been seen before.”
To Save the World - Beth Norcross
Beth Norcross set out to save the world single-handedly. Then, she burned out. That’s when Beth “left the Earth work to others” and decided to do something “less complicated” - she went to seminary.
In the Earth, In My Body - Margaret Bullitt-Jonas
Margaret Bullitt-Jonas’ relationship with Earth Ministry started with a chance meeting with Carla Pryne in 1998 on the steps of St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle, Washington. But Margaret’s passion for creation care started with her personal experience of having an eating disorder.
The Eternal Optimist - Diane Carleton
Several years ago, a member of Woodland Park Presbyterian (WPP) in Seattle, Wash., introduced Diane Carleton to Earth Ministry. “I saw the Greening Congregations Program and brought it up at church.” WPP is now in the process to become a Greening Congregation.
