Local author and photographer, and long time Spirit of Life UU member, Terri Willingham, will lead us in consideration of Living Green, asking, “What does it mean to be GREEN at church or at home? What choices can we make in the course of our day to day living to leave a smaller ecological footprint on the world, while leaving a bigger, more socially meaningful one?”
Living green is nothing more and nothing less than living with intentionality, says Willingham. “At the surface, it’s about conscious consumerism.But at heart, it’s about understanding that everything we do – from what we buy to what we eat, to what we say and how we act – affects everything else. ”
Spirit of Life UU received Green Sanctuary accreditation in August 2010. Periodically we revisit what that means to us as a congregation and as individuals, recommitting ourselves to the higher goals of the Green Sanctuary Program to give roots and wings to the vision that, together, we can create a world in which all people make reverence, gratitude, and care for the living Earth that is central to our lives.
Join Willingham on Sunday, December 30th, for an opportunity to join in that recommittment and to consider a fresh green start to your New Year.
