Engaging People of Faith in Environmental Advocacy
This chapter shows how faith communities have transformed the ministry of bearing witness through a focus on environmental advocacy. The work of churches involved with the organization Earth Ministry, based in Seattle, Washington, reveals how Christians can articulate their faith story and its mandate for environmental stewardship. Through this prophetic side of ministry, Earth Ministry and its member congregations have become strong players in shaping legislation that affects the health of God’s people and places. The lessons from this chapter include working with diverse denominations in the political process, advocating for specific pieces of legislation, training people of faith in advocacy, and greening congregations.
