Trinity people have been active in working with people of other faiths in pursuing environmental stewardship.
A Trinity parishioner is on the steering committee of Indianapolis Green Congregations, an inter-faith group that meets monthly. Indianapolis Green Congregations provides workshops on using energy prudently, how to start a green team, and on various other topics to promote care for the earth. It also fosters communication and advocates for sustaining the environment. In the past year the group has also helped Hamilton County establish its own Green Congregations and has worked to help Eastside Creation Care concentrate on that region. IGC has been active in connecting with other environmental organizations and in supporting the work of Hoosier Interfaith Power and Light.
Trinity was also active in helping with the interfaith prayer service that was held at North United Methodist Church on November 29, 2016 to pray for the United Nations Climate Change Conference beginning the next day in Paris. Clergy and parishioners from Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and Muslim congregations and the President of the Christian Theological Seminary read prayers and poems or offered music and song. There were readings from Pope Francis’ Encyclical on care for our common home. Our own Rev’d Bob Dekker of Trinity wrote and gave an affecting final Litany of Thanksgiving and Prayer.
