Godly Living, Green Living

Starting this Wednesday and continuing for 11 weeks, I will be co-teaching this class at my church during its Prime Time Wednesday community classes. The class starts at 6:30 and ends at 7:30 and all are welcome to a join us for a meal from 5 to 6:15. This week we will be introducing the series and asking you what you want to learn.

I'm having fun researching this topic, learning what I'm doing right and what else I could be doing. I think my theme will be "Take small steps and don't feel guilty because you aren't doing it all." For example, if you are driving a car that gets good mileage, shouldn't you be driving a hybrid car? If you are driving a hybrid car, why aren't you riding a bicycle or walking? Another theme is "What did Grandma do?" except she probably heated with coal or wood, which is something that you shouldn't emulate.

That sounds like a very interesting class. Will you post your notes? I'd be interesting in learning more about that!

I like the concept of the class "What did Grandma do?" Some not so good, but for those who lived and survived in the Depression, there is a lot folks in my parents (boomers) and my generation can learn - modesty, less waste and a sense of thankfullness for all you have - not taking everything for granted. Great concept, curious how it will go.
