Going, Going, GREEN!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 20, 2009 @ 4:29 am In Going Green | 4 Comments

When I was in college, “environmentalism” was a hot topic. My college [5] had an environmental studies major, and there were recycling bins, and there were rallies — and you got plenty hassled if you didn’t do things that were “good for the environment.”

Quite honestly, it was a little annoying. It seemed that many people were worshipping the environment. And since I wanted to worship God, in some ways I just rolled my eyes at those “green ways.”

Thankfully, God has grown me over the years.

Today, I see green things as acts of good stewardship. God has provided such a wonderful, beautiful world for us to enjoy. Don’t we want to take care of it?

In addition to reporting how we’ve gone green at our house, this week I am pleased to share with you several guest posts from fellow moms who have done the same. They’ll be sharing their experiences of putting good stewardship into practice.
