Forming faithful stewards, caring for sacred waters

Why I Give to IPC

Every year I make choices about the organizations I donate to. And every year, I choose Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake.

Ever since I was a child, I have felt something special, something deep, something comforting in the presence of nature.  Before I really knew what the word “spiritual” meant, I felt an energy from flowing streams, pounding surf, and the solitude of the forest - a sense of hope that I was part of something far bigger than myself.

Letting Your Light Shine

All_Saints_Luteran_pollinator_garden.jpgIn the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. -- Matthew 5:16

This passage jumped into my mind the first time I visited All Saints Lutheran Church in Bowie, Maryland. As I drove into their parking lot I was immediately struck by the number of trees planted and preserved on their grounds.  In addition, right at the entrance to the church, is an impressive pollinator garden. All around are signs that the congregation is aware of the need for God's people to be good stewards of the environment.

A Birthday Gift to be Treasured

JugBayforJulie-2-3.jpgOn the evening of September 20th, the Jewish community will celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the start of the year 5778 on the Hebrew calendar. Rosh Hashanah is both the beginning of a period of introspection culminating in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, as well as a celebration of the birth of the world. Inspired by that thought, some twenty members of Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation in Bethesda, Maryland recently undertook an eco-service mission at the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary on the Patuxent River south of Annapolis. At a time when Jews reflect on the birth of the world -- this amazing gift from our Creator -- it is fitting to remember our time out on Jug Bay and the ecological wonder that it is.
