Dear church pastors and leaders: (plus everyone you know and everyone you meet on the street),
Presbyterians for Earth Care invites you to be a part of our 2013 Conference “Ethical Earth Care: Keeping Creation Sacred.” We look forward to gathering together as co-stewards in Creation care during this challenging time where it seems there is little respect for our Sacred Sphere. The conference will be October 16 – 19 at the amazingly green Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
We invite you to gather together to reflect upon–perhaps even create–an ethic of Earth care which seeks the well-being of all Creation. We look forward to working together toward this ethic at our PEC conference.
We invite you to be a part of this amazing work, with shared wisdom from many different prophets and leaders of our time, including our plenary leader Larry Rasmussen, Th.D., who writes in his book Earth-Honoring Faith:
How, then do we hymn the Earth differently? How do we write and sing a new song for a strange land, even though it be our own? How do we do it with our neighbors, all our neighbors – human and other-than-human – when Earth is “hot, flat, and crowded” and when borders no longer protect?... That requires courage…the courage to embark on ‘ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown’; the courage, in short, to compose, sing, and enter a new song.
Friends, we look forward to the Earth-honoring work we will do together this coming October at the beautiful Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center. Go to the PEC website at www.presbyearthcare.org for more information and to register for the conference.
In and through the Christ of all Creation,
Holly Hallman, Northwest Regional Representative
