Nature is surely the glorified face of Good. See the beauty about you and you do see the manifestation of the infinite Mind. —Myrtle Fillmore
Walk the Talk -- Excerpts from Beth Remmes https://www.unityleaders.org/ministry-operations/integrating-earthcare-into-your-ministrys-life/
As the EarthCare message seeps into the hearts and souls of our youth, they may be inspired to start a project here at Unity of Gainesville. www.unityworldwideministries.org/earthcare
Some examples of what this ministry group can look like in action are:
Book club and/or Family film discussions on environmental topics
Outdoor garden and/or tree planting – With Linda Crowe our youth can see some of the fruits of their labors from last year particularly in the play ground
Local service projects/community outreach (e.g., pick up litter in surrounding parks) I would like to recommend that our youth help keep the labyrinth and playground free from weeds and walk the creek and collect trash.
Field trips to sacred sites or nearby trails
Church Recycling… Our youth reap the benefits of our recycling and were able to buy new folding chairs for the craft room with the money collected
Assist in changing lighting to LED or more economic bulbs
Become a hub for a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) delivery
Plant a community vegetable or herb garden
