We have copies of the book, Eco Faith: Creating and Sustaining Green Congregations by Charlene Hosenfeld, available for purchase at a cost of $10. We recommend that all Green Teams have a copy of this book.

For Christian congregations, another very helpful education resource is a 7-week small group discussion book called Christian Simplicity: A Gospel Value. It deals with protecting God’s creation, embracing gospel justice, and nurturing spiritual fulfillment. The articles are excellent and perfect for a small-group discussion. Available from www.earthandspiritcenter.org. 502-452-2749. Carol Meyer used this resource at her church last Lent and is happy to tell you more about it. Call her at 913-677-8672

Please contact us to let us know what additional resources you are interested in.  Call Carol at 913-677-8672, email her at carolm@ssckc.org or use the Contact Form below.
