Creation Care Sermon Winner: Kate Buckley!
This year’s winner for the Creation Care Sermon is Kate Buckley (’14) for her submission “Down and Dirty”. She will present this sermon on Friday, April 25 at a service led by SAGE. Kate is a senior in the MDiv program and a sustainable food and farming intern for Georgia Interfaith Power & Light (GIPL). She grew up near the marshlands of Brunswick, GA and graduated with a degree in telecommunications from the University of Georgia. During the Eco-Explorations program at Columbia Seminary, Kate was introduced to the role of sustainability in ministry which transformed and clarified her vocation. She is excited about ways her theological background intersects with the local food movement. Kate enjoys helping others provide wholesome, God-conscious meals for their families.
