To Love and Heal Creation: An Environmental Ministry Conference

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Wherever God calls you, there are things we know how to do now that are effective and make a difference in saving our planet for future generations. These practices are mostly small and easy. The focus of this conference will be on actions we can take, individually and collectively. An old proverb says, “Talking won’t cook the rice.” And it won’t save the planet, either.

Our Keynote Speaker is Rev. Dr. Faith Harris, Executive Director of the Virginia chapter of Interfaith Power and Light. Committee members will give brief presentations about the work our subcommittees are doing, and invite your participation.

After lunch, there will be break-out workshops:

– Gardening with Richmond-native species, with a little planting party at the end
– Addressing common church building-site problems, referencing the massive project at Richmond Hill
– Nature Journaling, a spiritual practice

Lunch will be provided by Roslyn. Please consider car-pooling.

Registration required!
