Green Sacred Ceremonies
Faith and Green Sacred Ceremonies
Some days in our faith journeys and in the life of our churches are particularly sacred: Baptism, Weddings, Funerals, Communion services, Easter, Christmas, and many more.
These days also serve as excellent opportunities to recognize and link your life with the sacredness of all of God's Creation around you. By holding these ceremonies in a "green" way, you add to the symbolism of the day, recognizing the presence of God and the interconnectedness of all Creation through the choices you make.
The National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Programs have put together the resources that you need to make your green ceremony kind to God's Creation. Celebrate and protect God's Creation at the same time.
Now let's Get Involved and do something! Encourage your friends, family, and congregation to consider the environment when planning for sacred ceremonies and their surrounding festivities.
Learn More about all of the ceremonies in our lives and how to make them friendlier to Gods' Creation.
