There are many opportunities at the presbytery level to raise awareness of important environmental concerns and to provide a faith voice at the local and state levels. Communication channels including e-mails and newsletters get the word out about putting faith into action in the public square for earth care around specific issues. Presbytery ministry teams or committees can develop advocacy resolutions either confirming a policy that was passed by a recent general assembly or concurring with the overture of another presbytery.
It is important to prepare well, and build strong relationships with decision-makers, both staff and volunteers in your presbytery.
