Organized by:

The Episcopal Diocese of Easton

Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake

Chester Valley Ministers’ Association

The Maryland and Greater Washington Chapter of Interfaith Power & Light

All are welcome to gather as people of faith and anyone else interested in protecting and preserving creation. This year’s theme “Faith and Environment: Learning What We Can from the Concepts of Sabbath” will explore how the theology of Sabbath informs our stewardship of the Earth. Presentations from three different denominational perspectives will consider work and Sabbath and how these concepts connect to our experience of nature and our stewardship of it. The afternoon activities, including some outdoor time at Camp Wright, will focus on our practical response.

 

“I for one believe that this could be a foundation stone of the faith community’s message around environmentalism — the understanding of work for the sake of the well-being of all creation, balanced with rest, to remember that we are not in charge, but also beneficiaries as well as stewards of a healthy, sacred earth. That is a most powerful message than can speak both to the individual and to the highest offices of corporate America.” — Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin, Chair, Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake (and invited speaker)

 

There will be a $10 charge for Lunch--cash or check collected at the door.  Let us know your preferences when you register.  You are also welcome to bring your own brown bag.
