This course will seek to address the spiritual responsibility of stewardship of resources within God’s creation and the call to Justice in response to protecting the creation. Congregations can use their space and their resources effectively without wasting the precious resources of God’s World. Come to this course to be challenged, inspired, and filled with wonder at God’s world, at the opportunities for sharing resources and spaces, as well as be encouraged to put resources together for change.
