This group was formed in response to the growing threat of global climate change. The relevance of this issue to our faith is well summarized in a resolution of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., which…
…finds that the Christian mandate to care for Creation and the biblical promise of the restoration of right relationships between God, human beings, and the rest of Creation impels and inspires us to act to reduce our energy usage.
…finds that the urgency, injustice and seriousness of this issue calls us as Christians to act NOW and to act boldly to lead the way in reducing our energy usage.
…strongly urges all Presbyterians to immediately make a bold witness by aspiring to live carbon neutral lives.
On Sunday April 23, we celebrated Earth Day Sunday with special music, readings and rituals in the worship services. At noon, in Fellowship Hall, Laura Stec presented a cooking demonstration and tasting from her cookbook “Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming”, which highlights the seasons and the connections between a healthy people, community, and planet. A good time was had by all!
On February 5th we celebrated with our community the 10th anniversary of being Cool Planet!!
You can see pictures of these and other events on the Cool Planet Facebook page.
