Faithful Ecology

An Advocacy Small Group of the GSLC Social Ministry Team



“Issues of sustainability are as much ethical as they are technical…They are about renewable moral-spiritual energy…Tending nature, soul, and society must all be done together, at once.”

                                                                                                                       Larry L. Rasmussen, Ph.D.


Human beings are called to care for God’s creation because we are full participants in that creation itself.  We at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church are deeply concerned about the environment and threats to it, whether local or global.  As people of faith, we believe we are called to responsibly care for creation, guided by Biblical principles of love, justice and stewardship.  Even as we join in political, economic and scientific discussions, we know that care for the earth is a profoundly religious and spiritual matter.


The Faithful Ecology Small Group exists for the purpose of assisting the faith community of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in practicing responsible stewardship of God’s creation and actively participating in its future health and sustainability.  Primary activities of this group include (but are not limited to):

  • Research and information gathering

  • Promoting awareness, education, communication and dialogue

  • Advocacy

  • Assisting GSLC in demonstrating care for the earth through active and intentional strategies, including recycling, green energy, environmental audits, partnering with faith-based/other collaborative groups, and related activities
