Earth Sunday was a Success!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped make Earth Sunday a fantastic success!

Our guest speaker, Cheryl Biller from Presbyterians for Earth Care, gave us a wonderful message which helped make our worship services very special and the creation care-centered liturgy from the National Council of Churches for Eco-Justice were a great touch!

If you missed our services on Sunday, click here to check out the Earth Sunday video, created by Scott Brusven. The video features several members and friends from Our Savior's faith community, as well as a few folks from the wider Fargo-Moorhead Community, who tell us a little about what they do in their homes and in their lives to be more green and why it's important to them, especially as Christians. It really helps to underscore our Earth Week theme: Eco-Justice as Community. All the little things we do individually work together to make a big difference. We are one body of Christ and when all the parts of the body work together to take care of the more vulnerable parts - amazing things can (and do!) happen.

It was great to see everyone in church on Sunday - enjoying the bit God's creation we brought to the front of the sanctuary, being inspired and challenged by our speaker, learning about eco-justice during our education hour and having fun at the picnic lunch. Lust like the issue of eco-justice itself - it was the participation and enthusiasm of the faith community that made this event a success!
