One of the activities of the Episcopal Ecological Network (EpEN) is to educate ourselves about the issues before us. We feel it is necessary to gain a deepening knowledge of the theological and spiritual issues, as well as scientific and practical ecological issues.


Earth Day

One activity that all can participate in is Earth Day.  It is our opportunity to express as individuals or as a group our concern for all that is happening to this planet Earth, our island home.
With this page the Episcopal Ecological Network (EpEN) seeks to provide both a listing of church-related Earth Day Events and Earth Day Activities, as well as resources (list pending) to help individuals and congregations to participate in Earth Day.

If you have an event to post, send it to

Earth Day Activities

Leafing the Tree

A project done by several churches in the Diocese of Tennessee in 2002. A clergy person gives a sermon on Stewardship of Creation around Earth Day. The Clergy person would finish the sermon by challenging his/her congregation to Leaf a paper tree on a wall outside the sanctuary with Green Power Sign ups. Please talk to your clergy person about doing  this or something similar during April (Earth Month). This was done at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville. For more information, contact Joyce Wilding, Province IV representative of the Episcopal Environmental Network.
