CCA Gathering- Guest Chris Joyell

September 17, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us Thursday, September 17 as momentum continues to build in area faith communities who are coming together to care for the rivers, air, forests and our neighbors in Western North Carolina. Our guest will be Chris Joyell with the Asheville Design Center who will be sharing with us an urban renewal case study and the clear implications regarding racism.  Creation Care Team Leaders, clergy, and all those passionate about creation care, ecological justice and loving our neighbors are welcome to join as we share moments of inspiration, support one another, and learn ways to more significantly transform our communities to be more compassionate and resilient.  This will be an opportunity to explore what congregations are doing in your community, how you might get involved or help initiate a ministry within your own congregation.  All are welcome.  Light snacks will be served.  Register here for a ZOOM link.  https://secure.everyaction.com/sMHYrxuBkkGsfJ7M2BM4Jw2
 If you are unable to join us but are interested in this work, please reach out to scott@creationcarealliance.org and check out our new online CCA Creation Care Toolkit to help you get started.
