It was a green day today with meetings with interfaith and Episcopal environmental activities.
This morning I met with Joelle from the Greater Washington Interfaith Power and Light http://www.gwipl.org/. Joelle, a passionate Jewish vegetarian holds the fort by herself at this organisation in Washington. Taking in D.C., parts of Virginia and Maryland, there is a lot of ground to be covered. Providing links to other community groups and faith organisations and providing information and inspiration to parish and faith communities, The GWIPL is a great resource in this region. I’ve been invited to Tikkun Leil Shabbat this Friday, and I am looking forward to participating in the Jewish worship and hospitality.
Joelle put me onto St Alban’s Episcopal parish here in D.C. http://www.st-albans-parish.org/. St Alban’s stand, literally in the shadow of the Washington National Cathedral, but due to their environmental and mission outreach programs they make sure they are not overshadowed. In a partnership with a private environmental start-up, St Alban’s have put a substantial solar panel system on the roof of one of their buildings. Today I met with their Assistant Rector, Jered who graciously gave his time to give me a tour of the panels and to chat all things youth-mission-environment.
All the very best to all those back home. Love from us both.
