Environmental Ministry Events

Lent is the time when we remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, facing challenge and temptation.  It is a time of repentance, reflection and action.  During the upcoming  Lenten Season -- Ash Wednesday (February 14)  thru Easter (April 1) - we ask that members of our congregation prayerfully consider enrolling in the Ecumenical Carbon Fast, sponsored by the MACUCC.   When you enroll (for free), you will receive daily emails suggesting one small action you can take that day to protect God's creation, along with a prayer or contemplation.   By living our faith in this way, we can rediscover a different relationship with God, with Creation and with one another.    Please follow this link to enroll.

The Wellesley RDF is now taking almost all food waste (even bones and meat!)  to convert to biogas!!    All supplies (compost bucket, liners and a container for transport to the RDF) are supplied for free.   Try it -- It's actually less messy than combining your food waste with the garbage!   For more information, or to sign up, go to http://www.wellesleyma.gov/899/Food-Waste-Program
