Good Morning Neighbor:
I just returned from a trip to the Grand Canyon which was a vast reminder of our need to care for this earth and all of its beauty. I have had the pleasure to get to know an organization that partners with Churches to help them promote this care for our earth - Georgia Interfaith Power and Light. If you are a member of a congregation, please pass this website forward to your worship leaders - http://www.gipl.org/home.html . I was reading through their most recent newsletter and it appears that there are ways you can help your place of worship to save money on its energy cost and provide educational materials for classes and special services.
I am also including this link http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/06/technology/06green.html?_r=1&emc=tnt&tntemail1=y&oref=slogin - this article provides you a way to reduce the electrical cost of your personal computers for free. I encourage you to take advantage of this - if each person on this community email list did this - our community alone would save more than $10,000 in energy cost - so I say let's get it done!!

As Margaret Mead once said:
Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
