8th Annual EcoFaith Summit: Cross Currents in the Flood

April 6 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT

The Northeastern Minnesota Synod EcoFaith Network, the Northwest Synod of Wisconsin and the Saint Paul Area Synod host the annual EcoFaith Summit at First Lutheran Church in Duluth, MN.

REGISTER HERE!

The climate crisis is upon us like a flood. We feel caught up in its cross currents that threaten to sweep us away and pull us under. We are overwhelmed by myriad floods: literal floods and other disasters that threaten our existence, floods of information and misinformation, as well as debilitating floods of anxiety and hopelessness.

At the same time, we are being carried forward on the Spirit-led cross currents toward new possibilities and new life. By acting together with an ever-expanding circle of companions, we discover signs of hope. As we build these relationships, we are building arcs that become the Ark necessary for survival. As we build these arcs, we look to the rainbow – the arc of promise.

During the Summit, we will join together to address our many questions. We will listen and learn from our keynote speaker, Christian environmental ethicist and author Larry Rasmussen, and from inspiring young respondents. We will sing and worship. And we will engage our bodies in arc-building actions and conversations, as together we conspire to embody God’s vision for our life together.
