A Chicago-based group is trying to make the connection between religion and the environment.  Faith in Place tries to implement environmental stewardship in faith communities. The group’s executive director, the Rev. Brian Sauder, says not all environmentalists are religious, but anybody who is religious should care for the environment.

“Since we work broadly with a diverse set of religious populations, it never looks the same in language from congregation to congregation,” he says, “but we do find it is one of the few things that we all share in common, and we can all go back to our religious texts, our religious traditions, our oral histories, and find in common this passion to take action to steward our resources well.”
Sauder is an ordained Mennonite minister.
