Dear Friends: In the wake of the latest National Climate Assessment and UN report on the projected serious consequences of unchecked climate change, interfaith leaders from the greater Boston area are working with Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) to host an Interfaith Summit on Vulnerability and Climate Change on the afternoon of Sunday, March 10th, 2019.
Sponsored in part by both the Environmental Ministries (EM) and Disaster Resource and Response Team (DRRT) of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ (MACUCC), the summit will focus on the role of faith communities in helping their community members prepare for future climate impacts. These include floods, extreme heat, and severe storms – events that have previously affected our local community as well. Acknowledging the types of changes, we are already seeing and can expect to see in the Northeast; the summit will discuss practical ways congregations can prepare themselves and their surrounding community. In particular, as we join together, we’ll learn how our spiritual practices can help sustain not only our efforts, but also our souls, hearts, and minds, as we engage in this most critical mission.
Won’t you join us? To register, the link for the March 10th, 2019 event is below. Held at Old South Church from 1:30 – 6 pm, carpooling from FCC here in Winchester to the event and back is available.
