Last October, UUCSH took part in a local, multi-faith environmental forum called “Many Faiths, One Home”.  That event was the springboard for a local GreenFaith group forming in our area.

UUCSH is proud to announce that we have joined in the formation of a local GreenFaith Circle.  The goal of these Circles is to identify environmental issues in our area that we can work on collectively with people of other faith traditions.

People of different faiths and spiritualities, united by a commitment to diversity and a spirituality of environmental justice and compassion, are connecting locally to lead their communities in response to environmental degradation. Together, we are generating respect and reverence for Earth’s sacredness, building an economy that sustains people and the planet, and rising as a multi-faith human community.

Our still unnamed Circle group has representatives from two local Jewish temples, an Islamic Center, a Reformed Church, and a Presbyterian church.  We are committing to building relationships around common concerns, working together to protect and care for the environment locally, and collaborate with regional, national or international partners.

The UUCSH Board of Trustees approved UUCSH’s GreenFaith Circle membership at the February Board of Trustees meeting.
