Hello Earth Care friends!

First off, a spring poem:

For The Future

Planting trees early in spring,

we make a place for birds to sing

in time to come. How do we know?

They are singing here now.

There is no other guarantee

that singing will ever be.

© 2012 by Wendell Berry, from New Collected Poems. 


If 2016 taught us anything, it is that there are no guarantees in our world.

Our work on behalf of God’s creation is more important, and more challenging, than ever.

There are many events planned for Earth Care in April in Rochester, and the Earth Care team wants to help communicate to the Presbytery of Genesee Valley some events and actions you and your congregations can join in on.

I’m forwarding three actions/meeting opportunities/event lists, in that order.  Please keep scrolling down, and get the word out!

Hope to see you at some of these events soon!

Lenten Blessings,

Laurel Nelson, for the Earth Care Team


1)Action:  For all those in the Board of Pensions:  a quick guide to divesting your own BOP account of Fossil Fuels:

2)Meeting Opportunity:    Citizens Climate Lobby holds empowering and “laser focused” meetings on enacting carbon fee and dividend legislation.  They are working bi-partisan way and having success getting this legislation proposed, even in today’s Washington, DC!
