To get a grant, congregations had to commit to reducing their energy use by 25 percent and help a third of members cut their home use by one-seventh, says Madeline Hirschland, director of the Seventh-Day Initiative. Congregations also are required to invest some of their own money in energy conservation, she says.

LTE Published: Carbon rules follow biblical command to take care of planet

 Rev. Lyle McKee's letter to the Editor published in Indianapolis Star

Here is an excerpt from Rev. McKee's letter to the editor. Please click on link for the full letter.  

The people now living on our planet will determine by our action or inaction the future of God’s good creation and every living thing on it. Until recently, there has been no national limit on the amount of carbon pollution that power plants can dump into our air. In Indiana, we’re already feeling the effects of climate disruption; and we can expect even more heat waves, more extreme storms, and poorer air and water quality in the decades ahead — posing serious threats to our health, our livelihoods, and our communities. I believe God shares the anguish.
