As the Energy Stewardship Minister for Province 1 (the Episcopal Churches in New England), I work with congregations, committees and dioceses to encourage energy efficiency. The ministry invites churches to reduce congregational energy use as an act of stewardship of both financial resources and God’s Creation.

The recently launched Province 1 campaign “Turn Off the Lights, for God’s Sake” is a way to engage in stewardship with even one small action.

At the same time, this ministry recognizes that small actions, while important for raising awareness, are not enough.

We encourage our faith communities to respond in a variety of ways to the growing threat of climate change, including public advocacy, conversion to renewable energy sources and creative carbon footprint reduction projects. Through this ministry, people begin to understand and appreciate the need to protect and preserve Creation.
