As the Sunshine State Interfaith Power & Light campaign kicks off, one St. Petersburg pastor is leading the charge. The Rev. Andy Bell, pastor of Lakewood United Methodist, has a lifelong commitment to calling people of faith to be better stewards of God’s Creation. Bell sums up the mission of Interfaith Power & Light as “Preach the message from the pulpit, institute energy-saving practices on the [congregation] campus and encourage members to take action in their own lives.” Seven parishes throughout Florida have gathered together to form the newest Interfaith Power & Light state affiliate. If you are interested in joining this campaign, please visit their new website!
