JCRC Co-Sponsors GreenFaith Environmental Education Events

The Jewish Community Relations Council is co-sponsoring two GreenFaith Ground for Hope education and training events for clergy and lay leaders in Kentucky. The first, Ground for Hope – Bluegrass, will be Saturday, March 8, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at Central Christian Church in Lexington, and the second, Ground for Hope – Kentuckiana, will be Sunday, March 9, from 2:30-6 p.m. at Highland Baptist Church in Louisville.

At these interfaith religious-environmental events, participants will learn about Biblical and religious foundations for protecting the environment, “green” facility management, religious education and preaching on the environment, faith-based environmental advocacy and more.

GreenFaith’s mission is to inspire, educate and mobilize people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership. Its work is based on beliefs shared by the world’s great religions – protecting the earth is a religious value and that environmental stewardship is a moral responsibility.
