Care of Creation – In early June, Pastor Steve and congregation members Sally Jacobsen and Todd Holman met with other area ELCA church representatives, at a gathering hosted by Lutheran Church of the Cross, to discuss how area churches are currently, or can be incorporating care of creation into their ministries. The idea-sharing session served as an inspiration for a conversation within our congregation as to the many ways we could potentially participate in caring for humanity as creation caregivers, both as a congregation as well as in our own daily lives. We would like to welcome anyone interested in sharing ideas and brainstorming to promote this initiative, to a “Care for Creation Conversation” hosted by Sally Jacobsen and other Social Concerns Committee members at 10:30 am, after our church service on June 25th. We are excited to talk about the vast number of ways, both big and small, in groups and in our individual lives, to greater serve and protect the gift of our beautiful planet.
