Connect with Lutherans Who are caring for creation!

Connect with other caring for creation Lutherans by joining one of our monthly Connections Calls, sharing your stories in our Good Green News emails (be sure to sign up as a friend of LRC to receive these messages!), asking your council to sign a “Covenant with Creation,” sharing about your work at your next synod gathering, or by investing in our work with a donation.

We are a network of truly engaged volunteers and act as a hub of information. We need your help to encourage others by knowing what you have done. We also need your financial support since we operate independently from the ELCA as a small, independent non-profit. With a humble budget we can make your contribution go far!

You can read (here) about how this movement emerged over 25 years ago.  Looking ahead, we need you to know that this effort is made possible through the generosity of individuals who believe that our Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) should be doing more than they already are to integrate Care for Creation ethics and actions into the life of the church.  We run as independent non-profit*, with an active Board of Directors and are sustained by a growing membership base.  Please join us as we need you now more than ever!

Simply donate online via our secured site (here). You may also mail a check made out to “Lutherans Restoring Creation” and send to: LRC c/o Phoebe Morad, 22 Waldron Road, Braintree MA 02184.

See what we have done and consider what else we can accomplish with your support! 
Please share with your congregation, friends, and family. 
 

For more information please contact, Phoebe Morad, Executive Director at 617-599-2722.

What is a Synod-wide LRC Liaison?

As a Synod-wide LRC Liaison, you are the point person for communication between Lutherans Restoring Creation (LRC), Advocacy and Stewardship outreach from the Evangelical Church in America (ELCA), your local ELCA synod staff and any existing green teams/LRC-affiliated congregations and “Friends of LRC” within your synod.  You should maintain and frequently share a digital list of the people who have expressed interest in this ministry at gatherings/assemblies/social media and ensure that LRC can connect them with information from throughout out network. LRC has official software which can maintain the privacy and integrity of the lists (none are shared or sold) and will relay contact information of local leads to you periodically.

Offering a quarterly conference call to connect the “green sheep” in your synod helps maintain interest and gain on momentum. Figure out what manner your existing flock is most interested in using to stay in touch with one another. Creating a Facebook page or Google group can aid in staying connected between calls. Ensuring a group presence at synod events and encouraging gatherings to follow an earth-keeping manner in assembling is another responsibility that you, or a member of your team, is encouraged to take on (and use the MANY templates on the LRC site to follow for an effective workshop).

Your role is to welcome newcomers to your group and ask for help in specific tasks if fundraising or outreach is needed. Also identify whether your synod would benefit from a retreat or training to equip, enlarge and direct more action within the synod or region. Contact Phoebe Morad to work out plans, find facilitators, make connections or just bounce ideas off of: 617-599-2722.
