"Enlightenment for a wave in the ocean is the moment the wave realizes it is water." -Thich Nhat Hanh
Forces of Nature is Greendale Community Church's environmental group. As an environmentally conscious church, we strive, collectively and individually, to be good stewards of nature and the environment while also addressing climate change. We plan to achieve this through education and action orientated, project based activities.
EXAMPLES OF THESE MIGHT BE:
• Environmental documentaries, podcasts, and book studies.
• Classes on a variety of environmental topics.
•.Green updates via social media and monthly newsletter.
• Take actions to reduce the carbon footprint of the church.
• Encourage sound environmental practices in the daily lives of ALL church members.
Our lives are like a wave in the ocean of reality. The ocean itself is flat stillness, but when moved by energy it rises up into waves. The wave is not something separate from the ocean, but is the ocean itself waving. Once we realize that we are not separate from this planet, but all connected together through it, will we become environmental justice warriors and true forces of nature.
