A new resource is now available to introduce creation care to youth: Wild Faith: A Creation Care Curriculum for YouthThis resource was designed and written as part of a generous fellowship from The Episcopal Church to support Environmental Stewardship.
Wild Faith offers comprehensive resources for camps, retreats, summer programs, and environmental programs. Along with tips and suggestions for introducing environmental stewardship to young people, Wild Faith offers six complete modules of resources for use by camp counselors, youth ministers, retreat leaders, clergy, and volunteers. Each module includes a worship service, an active group activity, small group discussion or journaling questions, and prayers for use throughout the day. Badges related to environmental issues may be earned by young people during, after, or independently of your program. Most resources may be used with adults as well. Topics include green spirituality, food security, energy sustainability, green social justice, and good stewardship of resources.
Wild Faith is also available in Kindle editions through Amazon.com. Materials may also be used by individuals at their own pace, on pilgrimages, and in conjunction with outdoor activities. Many of Wild Faith resources may be used in schools or with parish or diocesan Sunday morning programs or youth ministries.
