Pastors, churches and the environment

This morning I met with the Capital Area Pastors at United Baptist Church in Concord. There I met the people who serve:

We spent time reading Isaiah 61 and in prayer together for one another. Then it was off to Concordia Lutheran Church for the meeting of ELCA Lutheran pastors. We prayed, studied the Bible readings for Christ the King Sunday, prepared for sermons and shared updated about ministry locally and in the region.

After this I met with a leader of the NH League of Conservation Voters. He and the Council of Churches worked together in 2015 to create our Statement on the Stewardship of Creation. We talked about ways to take the next steps after that statement in 2018, including the upcoming legislative calendar but also ways to provide resources to local churches for their Bible studies, worship and sermons.
