As religious leaders and their congregations go ‘green’, they’ve neglected one vital Judeo-Christian teaching that could cut energy consumption and pollution by 14.2857 percent (1/7): observing a weekly Sabbath. As we reduce our driving, shopping, and business by one-seventh, our footprint on the earth will reduce significantly.
