Re-charge your soul and your car

Re-charge your soul and your car

The Rev. Cynthia Black who serves Morristown’s Episcopal Church of the Redeemer says: “A free charging station for electric vehicles, believed to be the first in town, is coming to the church driveway within a few weeks.” Morristown Green reports:

The idea evolved from Redeemer’s participation in a two-year program run by GreenFaith, an interfaith coalition that helps houses of worship set an environmental example, through energy conservation and public outreach.

Redeemer will celebrate its completion of the program at its worship service on Feb. 9, 2014. The achievement inspired the Bethel A.M.E. Church and the Presbyterian Church in Morristown to pursue GreenFaith certification together.

The cathedral in Maseru in Lesotho is also pursuing a “green” course of action. Anglican Communion News Service reports:

The Anglican Cathedral of Maseru has joined hands in order to create change environmentally. Having an understanding of energy and water scarcity, the youth took it as their responsibility to take action towards sustaining these resources. Based in Maseru, the Capital of Lesotho, the Cathedral is centrally situated, making it one of the key places to initiate a project towards energy efficiency, sustainable and renewable energy. On the 18th of December 2013 an energy and water audit was conducted with the support of Tsepho Hlasoa from SAFCEI. This involved a site walk about. Results of the audit were used to gauge the Cathedral’s water and energy footprint.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
