A congregation that is growing in its mission of cherishing and caring for creation will seek ways to incorporate "green" themes into its programs of religious education for children and adults.  Religious schools will provide opportunities for children to explore the natural world in a way that reveals it as a sacred mystery rather than simply a complex set of ecological phenomena.  Children should learn concepts of stewardship and sustainability with which to confront the prevalent ethos of exploitation and domination.



For adults, seminars, forums, and classes of various types can be integrated into congregational programs of formation, education and exploration.
