Church Leaders Seek "Greener Pastors"

April 30, 2007

Churches across New Hampshire are starting programs to "green" themselves to become better advocates for environmental action. Through a program called "Becoming Green While Staying in the Black," church leaders are finding ways to reduce their carbon footprint without budget-busting expenses. New Hampshire Council of Churches Executive Director David Lamarre-Vincent says the program helps churches increase their credibility when they preach action to stop global warming.

“It is hypocritical for us to preach about reducing your carbon footprint unless the institution of the church has put their money where their mouth was.”

Lamarre-Vincent notes that the program starts with an understanding that climate change is a faith issue.

“Caring for the planet is a faith issue from the first word in the Bible, and if things are not good now it's our responsibility as stewards of creation to care for it.”

The New Hampshire Council of Churches is sponsoring 15-hour workshops in making churches greener with support from utility company PSNH.
