Earth Ministry Gathering: Food, Climate Change, and the Church
Saturday, 24 October, 2009 - 09:30
We are pleased to invite colleagues and members of Earth Ministry to a 350 event that seeks to integrate the urgency of climate change with the inspiration and mobilization of faith communities. The program will begin at 9:30am and conclude with a potluck lunch at 12 noon.
With this event, we will introduce Earth Ministry's "Caring for All Creation: At the Table." Using this great resource as a platform, we will explore the link between climate change and our food production, transportation and consumption. Effective change comes through collaboration and cooperation, so we will conclude our program by asking our Greening Congregations Colleagues to share their own great work-- challenges and concerns as well as successes and hopes-- with one another and all of us in dialogue.
Afterward, please join us for our potluck lunch and bring your favorite food or drink produced within 350 miles of Seattle, WA: delicious artisan breads or gourmet cheeses from your local farmer's market, apples from eastern Washington, Walla Walla or Willamette wines, a fresh salad made from your personal garden's bounty-- feel free to be creative! We look forward to celebrating and supporting sustainable change with you.
