i thank You God for this most amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes
If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.

130 Texas Congregations to Join in National Week of "Spotlight on Global Warming"
Texas Interfaith Power and Light (TXIPL) is a nonprofit religious education project that helps congregations of all faiths in Texas take action to reduce global warming and air pollution through energy conservation and renewable energy strategies. TXIPL is one of 38 state IPL organizations.
Under the leadership of our steering committee, we provide theological and policy education, training, products and services that congregations and their members need to incorporate emissions reduction and renewable energy into their day-to-day activities and operations.
TXIPL is Texas’ only statewide, interfaith environmental organization with formal ties to the state’s Christian, Jewish and Muslim denominational bodies. TXIPL is the environmental program of The Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy.
Texas Interfaith Power and Light is part of a national movement with branches in 38 states. Interfaith Power and Light is a ministry devoted to deepening the connection between ecology and faith. Our goal is to help people of faith recognize and fulfill their responsibility for the stewardship of creation. Specifically, the IPL campaign is mobilizing a national religious response to global warming while promoting renewable energy, energy efficiency and conservation. People of faith have an opportunity to put their faith into action and help reduce the devastating effects of global warming. http://www.theregenerationproject.org/
TXIPL is a project of The Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy. TXIPL’s steering committee includes members of Texas Impact’s board of directors as well as renewable energy experts and religious leaders from a variety of faith traditions.
