Resources for Christians and seekers
Throughout the Bible we can find hints into the lifestyles of our ancestors. One would have to conclude they were pretty green. So, what can we do in this age of McMansions to live as responsibly as they did?

This study offers lively activities that illustrate the challenge of "going green" at home; it also serves as a simple and unintimidating guide for greening our homes.

For example, participants will be given an opportunity to design their dream house--and then be challenged to consider its potential impact on the environment. Even the church itself--the congregation's home--will be open to inspection as participants are encouraged to take a tour of the church building and grounds to identify things that could be changed to make the building greener.

Being green at home isn't difficult, but it does require more than turning out the lights when you leave a room. Greening our homes requires that we consider issues such as: overall energy efficiency, including efficient appliances and "vampire" energy; heating and cooling; water use; managing waste; and greener cleaning. Too many of us reside in homes that waste energy and other valuable resources at the expense of the environment, but we can all take steps to make our residences more earth friendly. And each change we make, however small, moves us closer to the ideal of responsible Christian stewardship.
