B.R. scholarship

Yes, that’s me a-top the administration building of St. Alban’s Episcopal Parish (http://www.stalbansdc.org/) with their solar installation. The Washington National Cathedral (seen in the background) was built on the St. Alban’s site.

In December 2010 and January 2011, my wife, Julia, and I traveled to the contential United States, thanks to the Beatrice Robinson Scholarship.

Awarded in mid 2010, this scholarship enabled us to explore seven major U.S. regions and examine specific environmental initiatives in the church. Specific attention was given to parish ministry activities which connected to social justice outreach, and community building in-reach.

I’m always interested in learning more about faith and community based projects which seek to holistically engage the immense challenge of climate change, and connect with the call to live lightly as loving stewards of God’s Good Creation.

Furthermore, I’m passionate about communities of faith being involved in environmental projects through locally-based initiatives and partnerships, so I’d love to hear from you!
