To observe the global celebration of Earth Day, which was first held in 1970, the Department of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical, and Interfaith Relations welcomes its newest addition to the Greening the Parish initiative: The How-to Video Series. Beginning on Earth Day, the Department will be releasing weekly new videos featuring ideas and ways to introduce creation care and sustainability in your parish and home. Ranging from practical to theological, each three-minute video offers a unique perspective on environmental stewardship through the knowledge and expertise of Orthodox Christians across the United States. 

Have you ever wondered how to start a garden at your parish? Or would you like to learn about 5 simple ways to green your parish? These videos will offer tangible actions you can adopt today, along with introductions to environmentalism, creation care, the theology of creation and the responsibility of Orthodox Christians. 

This first episode features Archdeacon John Chryssavgis on “The Green Patriarch.”

Episode 2 features Dr. George Nassos with “Practical Tips.”

Check the Orthodox Observer every Thursday afternoon for a new episode.
