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).
