Green Church Lessons in Wyoming

April 16, 2010

LARAMIE, Wyo. - The "greening" of the church is up for discussion this weekend for the kick-off of Earth Week in Wyoming. Church leaders and church-goers are gathering in Laramie to talk about practical things congregations can do and why they should do those things.

The Reverend Rebekah Simon-Peter, leader of On Sacred Ground is coordinating the workshop, which will include bible study and an examination of the green movement through the lens of Christianity and other faiths.

"We really are going to be looking at the scriptural foundations for 'reduce, reuse, recycle, rejoice, repent, reclaim' - all the 'Rs.'"

Rev. Simon-Peter says several churches in Wyoming have "green teams" in place to design and implement environmental programs, and those programs can start with simple steps, such as recycling.

"And it's everything from energy and electrical efficiency, energy efficiency, to the grounds, and really, maybe most important, is worship. How to green worship itself."

She says environmental stewardship can be part of creation teaching and fits all denominations.

The workshops are Saturday, April 17, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Laramie First United Methodist Church.
