Now is the time for people of faith to heed the call to be faithful stewards of the environment.  The Earth is a gift to be cherished. Its rich resources are on loan to each of us, individually and collectively. Yet we have been poor caretakers.  Our negative impact is evident all around us in trashed and degraded streams and waterways in your own neighborhood. But by working along with others this can change.

Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake will work with your congregation to cultivate a strong faith-rooted commitment to pollution reduction.
