I am The Reverend Betty Whitted Holley, Ph.D., Academic Dean, Director of the Master of Divinity Degree Program and Associate Professor of Ecological Theology at Payne Theological Seminary in Wilberforce, OH. I am also a presiding elder, superintending 28 churches in the Columbus, Springfield, Xenia District, located in the Ohio South Ohio Conference, Third Episcopal District, in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. I also represent my denomination, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, on the board for Creation Justice Ministries (CJM).
My work with various congregations and the seminary requires me to have ready access to a wide variety of educational materials, especially related to climate change, racial justice, and Earth Day, just to name a few. I can always count on Creation Justice Ministries for applicable resources for presentations, sermon starters, and information about a plethora of topics.
Over the years, Creation Justice Ministries has been able to expand the types of resources offered because of individual gifts from our community. When I needed information about preserving the history of various cultures through parks and monuments, it was CJM that aided me in preparing an op-ed paper that I wrote to have placed in the editorial section of my local newspaper. This is why I choose to support CJM all year round by being a monthly donor.
