Evangelical Lutheran Church Of The Resurrection
Getting ready to go to church:
As Trustees of Mother Earth
In Mission for Others
We participate in
The last Sunday of every month
*conserve water by sink washing
*refrain from wearing perfume; not only protects the air, it doesn’t use up a product whose packaging will end up in the landfill
*come with the face God gave you; no make-up, much of which is made with oil by-products.
*choose clothes that are recycled from places like Value Village or thrift stores. Or wear something from your closest that you have had “forever”.
*eat a breakfast made from LOCALLY PRODUCED FOOD; ie; no bananas, go with apples from the Valley.
Getting to and from church:
*NO COMING TO CHURCH ALONE IN A CAR!!!
find other people who will travel with you...friends or other church members
*take public transit, bike, or walk
*we know what happens week to week; so to sharpen our brains, the last Sun. of each month we will print the announcements, not the order of service (uses less paper)
* when donating coffee make sure it is Fair Trade
* include in conversation something new you will do this week for the environment; share something you have already done
After church activities:
*enjoy the outdoors in some way. Remember not to use toys that require the use of gas.
*pick garage up that you find on your street/road
*conserve water by hand-washing dishes rather than using the dishwasher
*enjoy supper by the light of a beeswax candles
Together we can have a huge positive impact on the world around us.
Let us strive to live in harmony with all of God’s creation.
God, you love your whole creation; put that love in our hearts,
so the world is healed from our past mis-endeavours.
