Report on Southeast Synod Retreat, March 2014
The Care for Creation Retreat of the SE Synod met at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Woodstock, GA, on March 7-8.  The retreat was facilitated by Phoebe Morad, LRC Synod Training Coordinator.
Three issues were the focal point of the retreat's discussion:
  1. Identifying what each of us could do personally to partner with God for care for creation.
  2. Identifying our individual commitments for connecting with other congregations and individuals in our synod.
  3. Prepare and work on a presentation for the upcoming SE Synod Assembly, which hopefully will include a plenary presentation, a 1 1/2 hour workshop, and a exhibitor's booth.
In addition, the following Mission Statement was adopted for the Green Team:
God's creation
Restoring with love
Equipping congregations
Empowering communities
Nurturing sustainability
