40 Days of Lent and 40 Climate Initiatives You May Lead On

By path2positive

Lent is over but the impact of climate initiatives during this time will live on. In honor of the carbon fast taken on by thousands of people of faith, cleanenergy.org has highlighted 40 congregations and faith leaders that have recently managed significant steps toward climate solutions within their faith facilities. 

From the blessing of solar panels at Christ Church Portola Valley in Portola Valley, CA, to harnessing the power of the wind at St. Olaf in Northfield, Minnesota. This year has seen plenty of leaders initiating climate solutions with the help of their congregations, some big and some small, but all within a steady line of thought that God has given us a gift, and we must care for it. 

As a faith leader, you have a unique potion to instigate changes like these at your facility today, and you don't need to rip off the roof to start. Simply adopt one or two actions from Blessed Tomorrow's Tools to Care for Creation per week and gradually move your congregation toward climate action. This will save money, honor God, and bring your congregation closer together. Get started today!

In the spirit of Lent, SACE has reflected on the past 40 days of Lent by showcasing 40 places of worship that put their faith to work by promoting solar and wind energy. Using these forms of energy presents opportunities too not only reduce the impact on the environment, but it also saves money. Many faith-based organizations really benefit from the reduced cost that these resources provide – and it helps in more ways than one by allowing them to advocate for creation care. Clean energy is a positive step forward no matter the faith one subscribes to! Even numbers are solar – odd numbers are wind!
