Dear friends and colleagues,

We welcome all those seeking a spiritually rooted response to our triple pandemic: race, virus, and climate, to an action-planning and discussion session, stimulated by the film, The Human Element. (free of charge -- see details below)

We welcome our social, racial and environmental justice allies, all Episcopal parishes, those from interfaith congregations, and those of diverse spiritual communities. 

Please join us.

Hope in Action
Film, Discussion, and Inspiration
June 17, 2020

Join Bishop Marc Andrus and the Creation Care Commission for a discussion of the movie The Human Element as we look especially at the intersection of the climate crisis and race in a time of pandemic. Join in discussion and choose a hopeful action as a community of faith.
This is an historic moment, ignited by unprecedented response to the murder of George Floyd, during a global pandemic, while living on a planet facing climate disruption. Is this a time of breakdown or breakthrough? In a moment of immense grief and suffering, let’s encourage and learn from one another new ways to participate in God’s work of reconciliation and transformation in the world.
Special Guests: The Rev. Melanie Mullen, Director of Reconciliation, Justice and Creation Care for the Episcopal Church and Tianna Arredondo, from
