This Land is Our Land: Faithful Stewardship of Public Lands

Public-lands-postcardEarth Ministry hosts regular gatherings to bring together church green teams, ecumenical partners, and friends to reflect on creation care issues. On October 26, a group of 27 faith leaders gathered at Fairwood Community United Methodist Church in Renton to kick off Earth Ministry’s public lands campaign. As people of faith, many of us are spiritually nourished through our encounters of the divine in wilderness. Attendees at the event enjoyed an engaging presentation about the urgent call to protect wilderness and other public lands, and learned about the steps they and their faith communities can take to steward the lands God has entrusted to us.
