Truett Seminary Honored For Environmental Leadership

Another good example of Baptists that have gone Green.

Here’s part of the press release:

WACO, Texas — Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, which recently earned a designation for international leadership in energy and environmental design, will be awarded a certificate on Aug. 27 for its achievement.

A plaque will be presented to Dr. David Garland, Baylor’s interim president and dean of Truett Seminary, by a representative of the U.S. Green Building Council during a celebration ceremony in the seminary’s Paul W. Powell Chapel.

Baylor is the first Texas university and the eighth higher education institution internationally to earn a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in the existing buildings ratings system. The system was established by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington-based nonprofit organization, said Ashley Katz, the council’s communications manager….But most important is that environmental responsibility is a way of being Christian stewards, said Dr. David Wilhite, a theology professor at Truett Seminary. He will speak at the ceremony.

If you know of any other Baptist churches and/or Baptist organizations that have taken steps to be green-friendly, leave a comment or drop me a line at aaron_weaver@baylor.edu.  I appreciate any info you have as it will help my research for a dissertation on Baptists and the Environment.
