“As for the wholesome land--its plants come forth by permission of their Lord. Yet as for that land which is befouled--they come forth from it only meagerly. Thus do We transform the signs of God for a people who are thankful. ” ~Quran 7:58

Faith in Place is collaborating with our friends in the Evanston Interreligious Sustainability Circle to offer a workshop on Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Living in Your Congregation. Our own Veronica Kyle will provide the keynote address on why Sustainability is a religious issue. Her keynote will be followed by two breakout sessions, one on energy efficiency and one on sustainable living. Breakouts will include members of Evanston congregations sharing their success stories and best practices, and Faith in Place staff offering some of our tools and experiences.
This is a great opportunity for Evanston congregations that are thinking about how to start a ministry of care for the Earth to pick up pointers about how to get started.
