SLIDESHOW: 'Rev. Riverkeeper' in Action

As Dottie Yunger writes in 'Rev. Riverkeeper' (Sojourners, November 2013), the Anacostia River is a “river of contrasts,” flowing through rich and poor communities in and around the nation’s capital. Yunger, a pastor at Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church in Washington, D.C., spent three years serving as the watershed’s appointed “riverkeeper.” Like the Anacostia itself, Yunger’s identities—as a person of faith and an environmental activist—are contrasting, yet deeply connected.
