I attended the True City Conference Breakout session-Digging into Environmental Concern:Exploring stories of how churches have tangibly worked to decrease their collective environmental footprint as a broader witness within our culture.
I was impressed by the attendance- most of the room was filled with young men in their early 20s. The focus seemed to be around food, conserving farm land,but also the need for commitment and support in sustainability ventures at church. One lady expressed frustration and getting congregation members to simply recycle! The suggestion was that children out to get involved since they have grown up with this drummed into their psyche!
100 energy saving kits were distributed at the conference.
