Nichols sees the panels as evidence of their religious commitment.
"Our faith stories tell us we are caretakers of this creation that God lovingly shares with us," Nichols writes in the church’s newsletter, The Tabor Trumpet. "We have a responsibility to protect the life-supporting systems God’s wisdom has put in place, for the sake of all who will depend on them in the future."
