Restoring God’s Earth is a program of Church of the Nativity. On October 1, 2017, following a period of study and reflection on the curriculum, A Life of Grace for the Whole World, Nativity launched the program. The curriculum is based upon the Episcopal House of Bishop’s Pastoral Teaching on the Environment, which calls “for all God’s children to work for the common goal of renewing the earth as a hospital abode for the flourishing of all life.”

The program consists of 12 monthly themes with weekly actions for individuals and congregations. For example, the first two themes for the months October and November are “composting” and “reducingfood waste,” respectively.

Information about the themes and actions can be found on the new web site: Zero Waste Church, or by contacting The Rev. Stephanie Allen, or Carl Sigel, For questions about the Zero Waste Church initiative you can also email

We are inviting everyone who cares about restoring God’s Earth to join us in this work.
