Creation Care Task Force at Florida UMC Annual Conference
I drove to Lakeland yesterday to attend the Florida UMC Annual Conference and to see all my Creation Care friends. We just want to save the Earth and believe God is with us in this goal. Here are a few pictures from the event. Below is the Plastic and Foam Free resolution that was voted on today and PASSED by an 82% majority. Our group was celebrating.
It encourages UM churches to quit using foam and plastic products for dinners, receptions, etc. Plus, it encourages the use of paper containers or real ones. My former pastor has real dishes at his church in Jacksonville and that’s what they use. If any other organization rents the space for a dinner, etc. they have to promise to use the real plates and wash them.
GOD IS GREEN!
As soon as I arrived I started crocheting plarn. Lots of folks stopped by and asked what I was up to and admired by six foot long mat made entirely out of plastic bags. I even taught a few others how to do it.
