Fulfilling Christ's call to love God, live in community, and serve our neighbor

Time to tend the garden

November 2016: Earth Stewards offer help for researching the candidates' environmental policies

Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. (Genesis 2:15)

We will be held accountable for how we steward the resources God granted so abundantly to us. Our citizenship in this democracy is one of the influential gifts we have been granted. Voting on leaders who will move our country and state in beneficial directions is an essential part of living out stewardship. How will you vote later this month? The winners will set the policy for our state and nation in the coming years. Make your vote count by researching the platforms of the candidates and making sure their ideals set this state and nation on a productive course. Here are links to some of the bigger races upon which we will vote on Nov. 8.
