Dear Friends, 
As a new Board member, and long-time champion of EarthCare in our region, I've got a few practical ideas for you and your ministry. During Conference many asked for a script of the 4 Directions Prayer I led for the equinox. There is no such script but see the video explaining the subtle nuances of this beautiful prayer practice: 
FYI: UWM EarthCare team will lead the UWM Connections Space conversation Nov. 10th, 3-4:30CT providing more practical ideas for Sundays and beyond. See more with this link: 
Ministries are receiving financial support through local power and electricity providers! Even if you have a historical building, do have someone check for rebates, carbon offset programs for solar installations, free energy audits and kits to reduce water and electricity waste. Member ministries of your state's Interfaith Power & Light organization receive deeper discounts for new appliances. 
Go to our region's website, under the Earth Care tab, for great info coming from some of our ministries--ideas that are working even though there is a pandemic! As the new liaison to Youth and Family Ministry, I look forward to sharing more as we progress through the year!
