National Council of Churches Resources on Mountain Top Removal

The National Council of Churches has resources available for congregations and other groups seeking to discuss mountain top removal and other eco-justice issues as a faith concern. You can find the two latest resources as well as links to many others here. There are YouTube videos available including NCC's Fall 2011 webinar. The opening shot of this video is a billboard that reads "Only God Should Move Mountains". If you'd like to subscribe to future emails from the NCC's Eco-Justice Programs, please email Will Layton at william@nccecojustice.org.
