Riverkeeper Spotlight: Care of Creation

Education, Sound Rivers

Posted on March 31st, 2022

Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell paid a visit to St. James Episcopal Church in Belhaven last week as part of the church’s Care of Creation covenant, “a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries and dioceses.”

Invited for dinner and the program, Jill spoke about her work as Riverkeeper and the mission of Sound Rivers.

“I talked about generally the state of the river, what Sound Rivers does to address those pollution issues, focusing on things that specifically affect their area, and what people can do to either engage with Sound Rivers to protect their waterways or what they can do themselves, on their own,” she said.

Part of the Care of Creation covenant includes promoting environmental justice, advocating for marginalized, vulnerable peoples, and seeking the liberation and flourishing of all people.
