Really looking forward to the GreenFaith Ground for Hope Bluegrass conference in Lexington this Saturday morning, 9:00-12:00, at Central Christian Church (205 East Short Street). I will be keynote speaker, and there will be workshops on creation themes in worship, religious education, and spiritual practice; on greening worship facilities; and on faith-based advocacy and fossil fuel divestment. The event is free and open to the public. Here is a link for more information and registration.
AND looking forward even more to the Louisville event on Sunday afternoon, 2:00-7:00 at Highland Baptist Church (1101 Cherokee Road). Keynote speaker will be Richard Cizik with panelists Sister Claire McGowen, Camille Helminski, and Rabbi Joe Rooks Rapport. Several workshops will be offered there as well--the ones from Lexington and more, plus interfaith worship. Free for students and seminarians, and $15 (to cover the reception afterward) for others. Here is a link for info and registration.
The Rev. Fletcher Harper will be teaching Sunday school and preaching at our church, First Presbyterian of Jeffersonville (222 Walnut St) through the weekend:
5:00 p.m. Saturday service
9:30 a.m. Sunday adult class, "Green our Faith: From Belief to Action for the Earth"
10:45 a.m. Sunday service
These events are co-sponsored by Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light, the Earth and Spirit Center, the Festival of Faiths, the Jewish Community of Louisville, Louisville Seminary, Kentucky Council of Churches, Blessed Earth, Interfaith Paths to Peace, the Bahai Community of Louisville, Compassionate Louisville, Earth Charter Indiana, and more.
So glad to see the faith communities and environmental communities of Kentucky and Indiana pulling together for these crucial events.
