Many churches are taking action to reduce their carbon footprints. But recycling and changing lightbulbs are only the first steps.
Written by the authors of How Many Lightbulbs Does it Take to Change a Christian?, this handbook gives clergy and church leaders the tools they need to help their congregations take those next steps. Structured around the Church's year for ease of implementation, Don't Stop at the Lights provides material to help church leaders plan a year of environmental change in their church.
For each season, it includes: Environmental themes and how to link these to services and sermons; Practical actions; Case studies of good practice to inspire church leaders; Study material on key Biblical texts on creation and environmental concern.
New - All copies ordered are now delivered with a free 2015 Update which includes new information including information about how churches can prepare for the Paris climate change talks.
