by Chris Olson, Operations Manager
Hello, hello! Many of you may remember me (if you don't, you can click on "Chris" under "Lables" to get a nice snapshot!) as the Lutheran Volunteer Corps volunteer with Earth Ministry in 2008-2009. As the Outreach Coordinator, I was involved with the Greening Congregations program and with advocacy efforts around the state during the legislative session. My LVC year ended but, now, after three years of adventuring, volunteering, and working with some other awesome organizations around Seattle, I'm back at Earth Ministry as the new Operations Manager! Woo hoo!
You may be wondering, "But, Chris, wherever did you go and whatever did you do for THREE WHOLE YEARS?" To give you a quick update, I've made a three-picture photographic exposition of my adventures!
I then spent a year combining my love for sustainable agriculture with my passion for living local by working at Beecher's Handmade Cheese in Pike Place Market. SO MUCH DELICIOUSNESS! Their mac 'n cheese is heavenly.
It feels great to be reconnecting with the Earth Ministry community and spreading the word about the creation care work being done by people of faith. There are so many exciting and important issues we're working on here, such as stopping coal from being exported from Northwest ports, banning toxic chemicals from kid's toys, and promoting a clean energy future. I'm excited to be a part of this amazing organization once again!
