In our monthly environmental calls, we seek to connect faith leaders around the state who are engaged in the work of caring for Creation; provide updates about environmental legislation and advocacy opportunities; keep you current on new programs and initiatives; and create a space for sharing hopes and frustrations, plans and ideas, stories and prayers.
If you missed a call, have no fear! We keep recordings of our monthly calls here.
Our next call is scheduled for Wednesday, October 24th from noon-1:00 p.m. Please join us!
