AFFIRM: Personally, with your church council, or entire synod, review our ELCA’s 1993 call to action and commit to engaging in steps to live into that calling. Ask your Church Council to consider how Creation Care can fit into the context of your church community. This Convenant is an easy way to do that, with background information and examples in our “kit.” If you want to start in a collaborative way, try hosting a discussion group using the suggestions *here*.
ACT TOGETHER: Reach out to all church members and share the ideas listed specifically for in our kit the area/committee they already work on: Action Plan Ideas for your covenant. Goals without specific people and dates may remain elusive. Use this form and our ELCA network to grow more Good Green News!
