Cal-Nev pastor launches 'green' blog
United Methodist Church of Santa Cruz pastor, the Rev. Michael Love has been inspired to share his vision of sustainability with a wider audience. At the beginning of November he and James Campbell – a church trustee who chairs the New Building Committee – traveled to Ft. Worth as workshop leaders at the Living Faith, Seeking Justice conference sponsored by the General Board of Church and Society, speaking on the topics “Going Green for Beginners” and “Going Green: Starting a Green Campaign.”
“They were really excited to begin practices of sustainability in their various local churches and communities,” Love says.
“Fueled by their enthusiasm for a way to practice what they learned, in their local churches, we set up a blog site.”
“The Green Parable” includes materials from the workshops in
Now, Love is telling his congregation, “Your green church building project is also living as a national teaching tool.” It’s just one more way, he says, that “building green” translates into “sustainable community.”
