Let your power go green

Stewardship is more than supporting your church. It is your life decisions. And you can be in the vanguard in environmental stewardship by deciding to follow the leadership of the Episcopal Church, the Diocese of Newark and the Church of Our Saviour by switching to green energy.

The Executive Committee of the Church of Our Saviour has switched its facilities to "green" power service -- electricity produced by solar, wind, or water power rather than coal and nuclear generators. So when you switch on lights or the air conditioner at our church, imagine the air growing purer. Public Service will now purchase clean power equal to the amount we use here each year. You can do the same at home. Contact Don Roberts for details.

The green energy movement began in California with Episcopal Power and Light, which has now grown into a nationwide program called The Regeneration Project. Our Diocese has joined the cause through GreenFaith, an interfaith organization in New Jersey developed under the leadership of the Episcopal Church.

You'll find numbers of links for more information below.

Vilas
"The purchase of renewable electric energy is a spiritual and moral act. The religious community is showing creative responsibility in taking the initiative to widen the market for energy that will lead to cleaner, healthier air for our children of the future."--The Rev. Franklin E. Vilas, D.Min

"Skip" Vilas, was the chairman of our Diocese's Environmental Commission, and President of Partners for Environmental Quality, Inc, at the time this article was published.
