During 2023, our church became a member congregation of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power and Light (PA IPL) after a recommendation to the Witness Commission from the Climate Crisis Action Team. PA IPL’s mission is to inspire and mobilize people of faith and conscience to take bold and just action on climate change. Through environmental education, sustained advocacy, creation care, and direct actions PA IPL strives to promote stewardship, creation care, and the use of clean, renewable energy. They have sponsored many tree-planting initiatives, education programs on religion and environment, and advocate for environmental issues at the local, state and national level. We were privileged to have Katie Ruth, Executive Director, speak to us about the work of PA IPL in a faith formation class during April of 2023. We are delighted to have them back on January 14 to talk about a new PA IPL initiative, watersheds. We live in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, meaning all of the water in our lakes, streams, creeks, and rivers ends up in the Chesapeake Bay. While the overall health of the bay has been improving over the past few years thanks to many agricultural reforms, we can all do more to protect our watershed. Please join us on January 14 during the Faith Formation hour!
