Some of you may have heard of the Interfaith Power and Light campaign through your religious affiliation. The campaign is being conducted by the passionate folks at The Regeneration Project, an organization dedicated to improving our relationship to Creation. It is heartening to know that people from all faiths are wakening to the need for a wiser and more just relationship with our living planet. Here is their mission:
The mission of The Regeneration Project is to deepen the connection between ecology and faith. Our Interfaith Power and Light campaign is mobilizing a religious response to global warming in congregations through the promotion of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and conservation.
A book published in February of this year was written by the creator of the Interfaith Power and Light and founder of the Regeneration Project Rev. Canon Sally G. Bingham. It is titled Love God Heal Earth. E.O. Wilson had some thoughts about the book as noted on the Interfaith Power and Light Website:
“Love God, Heal Earth” is a historically important contribution. Its authors of diverse faiths recognize that protecting the planet and all of life is a transcendent responsibility – for both the scientists who study it and those of religious faith who are able to express its spiritual importance. –E.O. Wilson, Harvard biologist and naturalist, author of The Creation: an Appeal to Save Life on Earth
