Pine Cone Babies

May 5, 2010

My daughter likes to collect a lot of things from nature, especially pine cones.  Here we put together a little idea using just yarn and fabric scraps to make babies out of slender, non-opened pine cones.

Walk for Creation! (May 7-25, 2010)

April 28, 2010
Dear friends of EEN,

As a prelude to the National Day of Prayer for Creation Care, join us for the Creation Care Walk.

From May 8th to May 25th we will walk from Ansted, West Virginia to Washington, DC. Along the journey we will be praying for our broken world and for the people who have been affected by our poor stewardship. As we pass mountaintop removal sites, national forests, farms, and suburbs, we will be meeting with local congregations and schools to share stories and practical biblical opportunities for engagement.  We will end in DC in time for the Day of Prayer events.

Come for all or just a part of the 18-day event: some of us will walk the entire distance, while others will join for a day, a weekend, or a longer period of time.  There is no cost to participate and we only ask that you take care of your own lunches.  Please let us know if your church, student organization, or ministry would like to send a representative or a group.

To sign up, just click on the “Sign Up To Walk” link on the Prayer for Creation Care website. As we begin the week you will be able to follow us live on the site’s blog.

Please email Lauren Marshall ( with questions or to request more information.
In Christ,
Rev. Mitch Hescox, President and CEO, EEN
