Greenbuild® hosts Cizik, Sleeth & Robinson to share “The Faith Case for Green”
CHICAGO, Illinois-November 9, 2007-This morning, roughly 500 of the 22,000+ attendees at Greenbuild 2007 wrapped up the conference with some of the nation’s leading eco-evangelists encouraging the faith community why & how to “green” the church.
Momentum Bay’s founder Mark Robinson, MBA, LEED convened & moderated the panel. Robinson also provided an overview of the faith case for green.
Then, Richard Cizik, VP of Governmental Affairs at the National Association of Evangelicals, shared a fun & very energetic update on the status of creation care & environmental legislation on Capitol Hill, as well as a very personal, encouraging message.
Following Cizik, J. Matthew Sleeth, MD, a former emergency room physician turned author of Serve God, Save the Planet & authentic environmental stewardship speaker, inspired great conversation, deep thoughts & even tears.
And, after some great Q&A, we paused to hear Chris Tomlin’s song “Indescribable.” Everyone suspended three days of attention to green checklists, green building & sustainability, & we refocused on God, the Creator & Sustainer of all things.
