Educate, inspire and create opportunities to lead more environmentally sustainable, just and spirit-filled lives – individually and collectively through the life of this church and community. We seek to model this commitment for others and the wider world through transforming ourselves and the culture and operation of the church.
When you come to church you will see a new item in the lobby of All Souls. We have created a Big Carbon Footprint with promotional information on the Footprint Game that will be conducted at All Souls. We are asking for your participation in promoting and helping with this game and getting our entire congregation involved in reducing its carbon footprint and saving our planet. Volunteering will really be a lot of fun so please let us know if you’re interested.
On Sundays between March 12 and April 9 and April 23, people and families are asked to come to a table at coffee hour to take part in the Footprint Game. In short, each week will take on a new topic related to individuals reducing their carbon foot print as follows:
- Sunday, March 12 – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
- Sunday, March 19 – Food and Water
- Sunday, March 26 – Transportation
- Sunday, April 2 – Home Energy
- Sunday, April 9 – Environmental Racism and Advocacy
- Sunday, April 16 – no tabling, break week
- Sunday, April 23 – Final opportunity for individuals to play the game on any of the topics above
We will need at least two volunteers to help with the game each week at coffee hour after both the 9:30 and 11:15 am services. In addition, the Carbon Footprint game will be going on with our children in Religious Education (RE) classes so we are also looking for individuals who could spend a small amount of time working with the children.
Green Souls members will have prepared all the materials for the Footprint Game and are asking you to volunteer for a specific Sunday at either the 9:30 am or 11:15 coffee hours during the Sundays listed above. Please let us know if you can assist! We can communicate with you about specific details. In addition, we will be having a planning meeting after the second service on Feb.26 if you would like to attend. Many Thanks!
