Creation Care for Church Buildings
There is a rapidly growing cultural expectation that buildings must be crafted to be environmentally friendly and sustainable for future generations. At the same time, many Christians are realizing that environmental issues are not merely political or technological but also spiritual, especially in terms of stewardship and social justice.
Churches are uniquely positioned to effectively model a Creation caretaker’s role in the ways they locate, design, build, and manage their facilities. This session attempted to de-mystify Green Design and demonstrate it as a sound investment that makes good sense economically, socially, environmentally, and physically. Churches were given with practical environmental principles to apply immediately to new and existing facility solutions.
