Stewardship of Creation Meeting, Sunday, January 9

Posted by: Chelsea Badeau on Thu, Dec 23, 2010

Under the inspirational leadership of Reverend Burt Froom, Summit Church has established a tradition of environmental responsibility. Burt and Pastor Cheryl called on all interested parties to participate in a brainstorming session in November to discuss what further measures we as a congregation might consider to take a more active role in caring for God's creation. Discussion considered both individually focused and geo-political approaches. One idea proposed occasional Minutes for Mission during the worship service which would provide tips on effective ways to reduce energy consumption and embracea "greener" lifestyle. Others supported the notion of advocating communally for environmental causes through the political process. Concern was also expressed that Summit isn't effectively managing energy use in its own buildings. It was agreed that we should form a new "Stewardship of Creation" committee to establish an agenda for Summit. We will meet again on Sunday, January 9th after worship to refine our ideas and direction. We urge all who are interested in this endeavor to join us. Please speak to Reinhart Struzyna or Marguerite Spencer for more information. A group of us met in November to talk about Summit's commitment to the environment and were excited about the work ahead:the name for our renewed committee is "Stewardship of Creation."
