Christians, says Penny Hooper, often don’t put their beliefs to work protecting God’s creation. They just need to know how, she says.
Interfaith Power & Light, Hooper hopes, is one way.
This national coalition that describes itself as “a religious response to global warming” and believes that Christians and environmentalists aren’t necessarily very different and that they can work together to solve the greatest environmental threat.
Interfaith Power & Light believes that the Christian response to global warming is good stewardship – in this case, promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.
“This organization works from our moral commitment to Creation Care and specifically for advocacy and education about climate change within faith-based communities,” said Hooper, Carteret County resident. “Alternative energy gives the churches more money to use in other ways.”
