Ways to Integrate Creation Care in your Lenten Practices

As we prepare for the season of Lent, share these resources with your Bible Study group, Worship committee, Church Council or just for your own personal Lenten journey:

  • Consider using any of these books as a personal devotional +/or in an online book study with friends/church members

> Wild Hope (join our Connections Call 2/25 to hear directly from author Gayle Boss!)

> Prayer Book for our Planet: Solutions for Social Justice and Environmental Change, by Marybeth Gallagher

Rev. Leah Schade‘s devotional: For the Beauty of the Earth

> Awakening to God’s Call for Earthkeeping – follow along for several weeks as a group study – wonderfully non-partisan and easy to follow.

  • ELCA Young Adults challenge us all to have #NoPlasticsforLent – check out the ongoing conversation and inspiration on their blog page (here).
  • The Low Carbon Diet (tools here) is a fun challenge for groups to reduce their carbon footprint.  For the most trusted carbon calculations go to the EPA’s tool (here).
