Finalists for Earth Ministry's Sermon Contest!

Earth Ministry is proud to announce this year's four finalists in the St. Francis Creation Care Sermon Contest.

We received many inspiring sermons from people across the United States. We are so grateful for all who shared their moving words. But there can only be four finalists, and here they are:
  • Elizabeth Freese, Austin, TX
  • Jeanie Graustein, New Haven, CT
  • Rev. Anne Hall, Seattle, WA
  • Dr. Hank Langknecht, Columbus, OH
Please join us on September 26, 2009, from 4-6pm to be inspired by the beautiful messages that God has given our finalists to share, to pray for our growing number of Greening Congregations, sing songs of praise to our God for the gift of creation, fellowship with one another, and support the work of Earth Ministry. A heavy hors d'oeuvres reception will follow the event.

The Celebration of St. Francis will be held at University Lutheran,1604 NE 50th St, Seattle. The event is free to all. As an attendee of this event, you will have the opportunity to vote for the sermon that inspires you the most through a paper ballot and donation to support the work and mission of Earth Ministry.

Parking is free at the University Lutheran and University Christian Church (4731 15th Avenue Northeast - just a block away from University Lutheran).

We encourage our Greening Congregations to send representatives from their green team and church membership to stand and be recognized for their accomplishments.

Please join us at this celebratory event!
