On March 6th, we were honored to be at Church of the Savior in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Lindquist Environmental Appalachian Fellowship (LEAF) began in 2005 at Church of the Savior as a testament to the life, deep faith and dedication to environmental stewardship by Kathy Lindquist. Dawn Coppock and Pat Hudson headed this fellowship for nine years, giving free creation care materials to churches as well as advocating for protection of Tennessee's beautiful mountains. Dawn and Pat have decided to focus their energies elsewhere, but were instrumental in making sure that creation care education continues through Blessed Earth Tennessee and serve on our board.
It was an honor to introduce ourselves to the members of Church of the Savior and especially Kathy Lindquist's husband, Walter Harper.
