Moments from life at IBTS

Care for Creation

Living in the beautiful Sarka Valley, it’s nearly impossible not to be reminded of the beauty of our Creator’s work, and also not to think about our part in sustaining and developing that beauty by becoming co-creators. As you know, we’ve tried to do it in a variety of ways – not only by offering courses on Creation Care/Church and Environment, but also by incorporating it in our worship life and community activities. One of them has been our annual Environment Month – and the last one has just ended. So at its end, and before the Advent Season begins, here are some pictures, especially for those of you who would have loved to be with us but couldn’t. (And I’m sorry re strange sequence of pictures – how to get them in proper order was beyond me!)
