The Lower Kennebec River Watershed Event, sponsored by the Spirituality and Eart
The Lower Kennebec River Watershed Event, sponsored by the Spirituality and Earth Stewardship Program, is a project initiated by the Maine Council of Churches. Tom Ewell, executive director of the council, believes a healthy environment is critical for both physical health and spiritual nourishment. Susan MacKenzie is running the council's program, which held its first celebration recently in Hallowell and has another scheduled for Sept. 26 at Merrymeeting Bay. Roman Catholic churches in Maine have also been increasingly attentive to the environment. Monsignor Charles Murphy of Falmouth is widely known for his book "At Home on Earth," a reflection of Catholic theology on environmental issues. And The Ministry of God's Creation, an offshoot of the United Methodist Church, targets consumerism as an environmental problem.
