A MIN­IS­TER WHO IS ASK­ING MORAL QUES­TIONS ABOUT THE CAR­BON IM­PACT OF THE CHURCH

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY -

“In my cur­rent job I travel a lot by car and by plane, and at some point we, as a church, are go­ing to have to look at that. What is the car­bon cost of fly­ing, for ex­am­ple? I fly a lot. I’ve been to New­found­land two or three times in the past month. Can we keep do­ing that? As a church is it morally ac­cept­able to do that? To me, these are ques­tions we’re go­ing to have to wres­tle with.

“Cur­rently, the United Church has some very (at­trac­tive) grants for churches who are retrofitti­ng their build­ings for green energy. So those are the things I think we’re go­ing to have to be about. We’re go­ing to have to re­duce our foot­print.” — An­drew Richard­son, United Church of Canada min­is­ter and re­gional man­ager, P.E.I.
