Morvey Manshadi – Baha’is of Louisville
In February of 2010, Morvey read a letter from the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States regarding the newly established Seven Year Plan of Action on Climate Change. The words she heard moved her and led her to explore the ways in which she could be a better steward of the planet. Her journey has helped her to embrace “the truth that all things are interdependent and that man is organic with nature.”
Morvey has become very involved with Kentucky IPL throughout her wake-up journey. She contributes her time regularly to volunteer at Kentucky IPL events as well as gleaning for the Harvesting Hands program. In her own faith community, Morvey has started an Environmental Awareness Committee where she continues to engage and educate the Baha’is of Louisville on climate change and environmental preservation.
You can read more about Morvey’s journey on her blog “Fulfilling Faith: Crossing the Bridge Between Spirituality and Sustainability,“ which has been circulated throughout the national Interfaith Power and Light community.
