“Green” Faith

People of faith in Tucson are raising awareness about the implications of global warming on the planet. "The Earth has rights, and to care for the Earth we can't do it in the abstract," said the Rev. Stuart Taylor of St. Mark's Presbyterian Church in Midtown. Sylvia Thorson-Smith, a St. Mark's elder and a retired professor of sociology and religious studies, believes that "Jesus was deeply rooted in the Earth."

The church leaders are encouraging their congregation to replace older heating and cooling systems with new, efficient models; clean the condenser coil on the refrigerator; turn off computers at night and putting them in a power-save mode; wash clothes in warm or cold water; and buying in bulk, which reduces packaging.

The church also is considering banning non-vegetarian food from its premises because as Susan Manker-Seale, church's minister, says "Eating beef is a huge pollutant of the Earth."
