LCI joins green certification program for churches

From page A4 | January 21, 2014 |

Members of Lutheran Church of the Incarnation will put their beliefs into action for the Earth, thanks to the GreenFaith Certification Program, to which LCI was accepted in December. LCI is the first house of worship in Davis to join this national interfaith program.

“We are called to care for creation,” said the Rev. Dan Smith of LCI. “We are excited to join the GreenFaith Certification Program because it gives us the tools to become strong environmental leaders. We want to live out these ‘green’ values in everything we do — from our preaching and education to the operation of our building, to our advocacy for a healthy environment for communities of color and low-income communities.”

The interfaith program is designed to help churches, synagogues, mosques and temples earn recognition as environmental leaders by carrying out over two dozen environmental activities over two years.

All are welcome to attend the GreenFaith “Getting Started” webinar at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, in the LCI south room, 1701 Russell Blvd. It will be led by the Rev. Fletcher Harper, executive director of GreenFaith, and Stacey Kennealy, director of the GreenFaith Certification Program, and will include participation by congregations from across the country that are launching into the two-year program.

LCI’s GreenFaith kickoff luncheon is planned for noon Sunday, Jan. 26, in the church Fellowship Hall. The free luncheon also will wrap up the Food and Faith program.

“Please bring a special potluck item to share and a card that describes why the food you prepared is special to you,” a news release said. “You might consider preparing a favorite family recipe or something that you feel is particularly healthful, tasty or ecologically sustainable.”

To share a local organizational perspective on environmental sustainability, Doug Walter of the Davis Food Co-op will speak about how environmental goals shape decisions at the Co-op.

“This program is a challenging, important way for houses of worship to become environmental leaders,” said Harper of GreenFaith. “As LCI goes through the program, their members will experience the transformation that comes from sharing a religious commitment to creation.”

GreenFaith will provide extensive support to LCI, and to all participating institutions through webinars, a listserv, web-based resources, and help from GreenFaith staff. When LCI has completed the program, GreenFaith will recognize the congregation as a religious-environmental leader.
