Earth Stewardship Resources for People of Faith

 

Leaders from all faiths have published a vast array of resources that demonstrate that stewarding and caring for the Earth is wholly consistent with a belief in God. This year, thousands of religious leaders are preparing Earth Day Sermons to give to their congregations on the week of Earth Day.  

The following web sites feature great resources to help develop Earth Day Sermons or projects to green your congregation and your community.

This is a living list, so please email faith@earthday.org  if there are materials that you would like to feature on this page.
