Congregational Watershed Manual- Religious Communities as Stewards of the World’s Waters- Interreligious Version
By The Rev. Dr. Nancy Wright, Richard Butz, MFA
Jan’s Quick Take: I have come to know authors Nancy Wright and Richard Butz as friends and as two delightful and well informed people with a wonderful message to share of how people of faith can act for good for clean water, and for a compelling project to unify congregations of all ages, anywhere!
Abstract: In this inter-religious manual suitable for people of all faiths, Vermont Interfaith Power & Light (VTIPL) is furthering its work in addressing the crisis of climate change, by recognizing that clean and adequate water is essential to all human communities and all life. Congregations everywhere can learn from this model of learning and action set in Vermont. Included are practical instructions of how to hold outdoor worship on and around water, do stream cleanups and water monitoring, and influence public policy. VTIPL Director Betsy Hardy says, “VTIPL is grateful to the Rev Dr. Nancy Wright and Richard Butz for all their work on this manual” helping to bring about “an informed, concerned, and active citizenry.”
