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?
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.
