IEN Program Director in the News, Riding the ELF

The interfaith Earth Network was in the news twice this week. Kirsten Shead, the Program Director for IEN has caught the attention of both the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Today's TMJ4. She was interviewed live last night on Wisconsin Tonight on Today's TMJ4 - check out the video.

The ELF, a wasabi-green, three-wheeled, solar-assisted electric bicycle can turn some heads. Both stories reference the connection of Faith and care for the Earth.

How are you striving to make more sustainable, eco-minded transportation choices?

In Remembrance

Carol Waskovich, a founder and longtime member of the IEN steering committee, passed away on September 2. During her lifetime she suffered from a connective tissue disorder, which challenged her ability to walk. Last year she reflected on her condition in a poem she titled Making Connections. This poem was read during her burial service at Prairie Home Cemetery in Waukesha September 4. Carol wanted to continue her strong connection with the earth even in death. She chose a “green” burial in which her body was wrapped in a shroud and placed directly in a grave.

We fondly remember Carol and are grateful for her invaluable service and inspiring life.

Her death notice can be read on JS Online.

This series invites persons of all faiths and spiritualities to gather

Water Shield

This dynamic new initiative is designed to help congregations and individuals become leaders in conservation, protection, and celebration of water. The Interfaith Earth Network is GreenFaith's first regional partner in this program, which we launched through our "Making Waves for Water" event this January. Those who attended this event were among the first to join this nationwide movement towards appreciating, honoring, and responsibly stewarding this deceptively abundant resource.

GreenFaith Official Website

You are heartily encouraged to explore Water Shield as a way for their congregation or faith community to engage more deeply and more responsibly with water. For more information and guidance implementing this in your community, contact the Interfaith Earth Network.

Please consider a contribution to help us further our cause. Please be assured that your information is secure.

Interfaith Earth Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and as such your contribution is tax deductible.
