Event Description

GINI is hosting an "organizing" meeting for people of all faiths who would like to either initiate or invigorate the discussion of Earth stewardship and eco-justice at their place of worship.
Ideally 2 or 3 people from a faith group or church should plan to participate in the same meeting. This will create a core group who can work together to adapt the information for use at their house of worship.
The organizing meetings are being held at the Presbyterian House at ETSU's campus (1412 College Heights Rd., Johnson City, TN). The same presentation that was given on Monday will be given on Tuesday, August 16, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM.  Please plan to bring a beverage on Tues. evening. Light snacks will be provided Tues. evening.
Each of these meetings will consist of an interactive presentation offered by Carol Landis, followed by small group activities to enable the participants to adapt the presentation to better suit their faith group's situation. Carol's presentation will be modeled after a similar meeting she facilitated in Ohio in recent years.
Please RSVP with the number attending (and which meeting--Mon. morning or Tues. evening) to greeninterfaith@gmail.com

Thanks Carol for doing this! I was happy to see that 8 folks showed up along w/ me at the first meeting. 

I now have some things to chew on, particularly wrangling a small group of people who would be willing to make changes in their individual lives, under $25 or above $25, for several months as a test case and then to share the process with the congregation.  I am thinking how it could be competitive yet fun and positive -- like the "biggest losers" tagline. 

 

Also, I want to encourage a greater sharing of eco & social justice issues from our leadership in their messages and sermons.  And along with that, I want there to be more and more awareness in the congregation about how our own actions affect others and how we can therefore be moved to change. I don't know how to bring this awareness about, however.
