Sunday: "Through this campaign, we are offering loads of free
resources for theological and practical creation care in your
communities," says Communications Director, Luke Wilson.

by inviting fellow stewards to share stories via Facebook, Twitter,
blogs, and other social platforms.
Thoughtful supporters have already started to build community
gardens, adopt parks and streams, encourage family and friends to
‘live lighter’, and to spread the word via social media.

involved in caring for creation in their neighbourhoods," says A

Markku and his wife, Leah, helped to establish the A Rocha ministry
here, as Canada’s first Christian environmental centre. Leah’s
highly acclaimed book, Planted: A Story of Creation, Calling, and
Community (Cascade Books, 2013) tells their inspiring story, and is
part of Good Seed Sunday's robust resource collection.
