Faith-based supports for protecting the environment


Commonly people think about the environment in purely rational ways (science, etc.) — or in political ways (governmental decisions, etc.) — or in emotional ways (feeling good about being in nature, etc.).

In addition, some people draw strongly from their religious and spiritual groundings in order to motivate their environmentalism and also to help them organize for the environment by connecting through their local congregations and larger religious denominations.

See a variety of faith-based environmental organizing efforts, resources, etc., at

In addition, we have some regional non-profit organizations who are doing this kind of work.  I recommend these:

Interfaith Power and Light has several affiliates at the state level. Here in Washington State, IPL is affiliated with Earth Ministry. See BOTH organizations at this link:
