Climate training happening in Ashland in May


Time is short to apply for the upcoming Climate Training on May 1-3 at Ashland First United Methodist.

Clergy and people of faith who are interested in climate issues and/or are active in their congregations are encouraged to apply by April 1st as space and reduced rate lodging is limited. The event brings together experts from across context spectrums from Alaska to California and includes Climate Speakers Network (a project of Climate Reality) staff, indigenous voices, hard science, grief work, and conversations with organizers who have made a real difference in their communities--all from the perspective of faith.

As United Methodist Coyote-Marie Hunter Ripper explains, “In our Bible the front page news headlines charge us with and tell us we are responsible for being stewards of the Earth and all that lies within.” Come and connect with people of faith from across the west as we seek to learn more and support each other in this effort of imperative for our faith, our kids and communities, and this good creation.
