On April 25, 2003 The Indy Star reported that "in a world in which religious identities too often divide, the Rev. Bob Edgar believes working to protect the environment might be one of the few places where faithful people can find unity... As general secretary of the National Council of Churches of Christ, Edgar is traveling the country promoting faith-based environmental activism. He stopped in Indianapolis on Thursday to make his pitch to the annual meeting of the Religious Communicators Council, an organization of writers who work for denominations and other faith groups... Since 1992, evangelical Christians, Catholics, Jews, Orthodox Christians and mainline Protestants have launched a series of campaigns to inspire activism among religious people."
