Caring for Creation offers resources for starting green ministries

Green Caring for CreationFor the past two years, Betty Brandt of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, IN, has journeyed to Lake Junaluska to learn at Lake Junaluska's annual Caring for Creation. As the leader of her church's green ministry, Brandt has sought opportunities to more efficiently promote an environmental consciousness in the church since St. Luke's UMC began its green ministry in 2007.

"I was very pleased to be able to meet other people and hear what they're doing," explained Brandt. "It was great to pick up national information we wouldn't necessarily know about in Indianapolis. We don't have any program like Caring here. It's an asset for us to be able to be here."  READ MORE
