The Maryland Episcopal Environmental Partners are happy to announce a partnership with the Delaware-Maryland Lutheran Synod. To celebrate the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, the Lutheran Creation Care Team has obtained a grant to plant 500 trees across the state. We are called as Christians to be stewards of God’s Kingdom, to care for creation and help it to grow. Together with our Lutheran partners, we will care for God’s creation, and help the kingdom around us to grow and be nourished.
We began this partnership with a Spring Tree Planting event held at the Diocesan Center on April 19th. Our first tree to be planted from this partnership was a fringe tree, which was prayed over and blessed by Bishop Sutton.
As part of the tree planting program, the Lutherans are holding workshops to talk about the importance of creation and how to care for trees.

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city. On either side of the river is the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there any more. But the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him; they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And there will be no more night; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign for ever and ever. – Revelation 22:1-5
