Is Your Church Green?

World on the Web (World Magazine) asks Is Your Church Green? They aren’t asking if your church is showing “An Inconvenient Truth” or if your pastor is preaching a ten-week series on global warming. The primary focus of the article is about evaluating our church buildings in terms of five environmental factors:

  • sustainable site development
  • water savings
  • energy efficiency
  • materials selection
  • indoor environmental quality

I would add a sixth: aesthetics. Are the building and grounds beautiful, or are they a scar on the landscape?

Beauty doesn’t have to be expensive.

Grace and Peace
