Student Feedback

"First class Norman! Clear and concise and easy to absorb quickly so am sending your mini course to our clergy, wardens and parishioners. Thank you."

Robert Wilkinson

"So great to hear so many ideas as we start a Green Team at our church! Thanks for the steps to take. I loved the ideas of a lunch after church and a movie, and green tips for our bulletin. We have few youth attending, but they might join the Green Team as it is something they can identify with."
