In her work at Interfaith Power & Light, Hermina Glass-Hill encourages people of faith to be good stewards of the Earth.
For Hermina Glass-Hill of Savannah, Georgia, caring about the environment started with religion. She grew up in a Christian church, and her family observed the Sabbath surrounded by the natural world.
“We would actually go camping on the Sabbath. We would go picking plums on the Sabbath,” Glass-Hill says. “They are some of the best memories that I have in my life. We would be able to … appreciate the gifts of Creation, which is land, air, clean water, wildlife.”
