Our Earth is in crisis.
The needs of seven billion people are immense. Current human practices are pushing essential life – sustaining systems beyond their limits, creating a growing danger to all living things, including humankind. Beacon answers this urgent challenge through our Green Earth Ministry. Working as a
community, we step forth as leaders to protect, restore, and sustain a flourishing Earth.
The Green Earth Ministry (GEM) Team is led by Margaret Babcock (MLBabs@msn.com) and Bill Griffeth (firstname.lastname@example.org). GEM is committed to reducing fossil fuel emissions. Recently we’ve been focused on electric vehicles and recycling initiatives in Summit.
Our second way in which we raise our earth consciousness is through a monthly service called Green Vespers. Designed to be earth-centered, this one-hour service is followed by a community potluck with mostly vegetarian dishes. The service itself includes reflection, music and often conversation. Helen Kaar (email@example.com) designed this service and leads most Green Vespers. Check out the calendar here (insert the link) for our upcoming service. The group meets typically on the third Saturday of the month at 6:15 pm.
