A 350.org Event!

Earth Ministry Gathering:
Food, Climate Change, and the Church

October 24, 2009; 9:30am-12pm
Ballard First Lutheran
2006 NW 65th St, Seattle

Please join us at our Earth Ministry Gathering: Food, Climate Change, and the Church on October 24 for an engaging and enriching 350.org event.

The day's events will include:
  • The official introduction to Caring for All Creation: At the Table, an updated and greatly expanded version of Earth Ministry's popular curricula; this resource provides detailed resources for creation-oriented worship services focusing on sustainable agriculture and healthy eating
  • An interactive presentation about the link between climate change and our food production, transportation, and consumption
  • An opportunity to share with one another about the successes and challenges of stewarding God's creation in our home churches (For those new to Earth Ministry, this is an ideal time to learn more about the Greening Congregations process and lived ministry)
Afterward, please join us for our potluck lunch and bring your favorite food or drink produced within 350 miles of your home: delicious artisan breads or gourmet cheeses from your local farmers market, apples from eastern Washington, Walla Walla or Willamette wines, a fresh salad made from your personal garden's bounty-- feel free to be creative!

Your RSVP allows us to plan for seating and resources. Thank you!

*If you're interested in doing more for 350.org, please join others from Earth Ministry and come to the Seattle Center Fountain on October 24 by 3pm to be arranged to spell out 350. Photographers will take pictures of the 350 from above at 3:50pm. Participating groups include CoolMom, Climate Solutions, Seattle Parks, Seattle Climate Action Network, WSU Climate Masters, Seattle Green Schools, and many others promoting great ways for you to take climate action now-- learn more here!
