2017 FLORIDA INTERFAITH CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK ASSEMBLY
Apr 28,2017 - Time: 9:00 am - 11:45 pm
Floridan: Water Is Our Life
The 3rd annual Florida Interfaith Climate Action Network is scheduled for APRIL 28, 2017
, at First United Methodist Church, 142 East Jackson Street, Orlando. This year’s assembly will lift up how the theme “water is life” is reality in Florida, from the precious Floridan Aquifer to the river of grass flowing into the Everglades to the rising seas along the beaches, and the estuaries threatened by runoff and salinization, plus the growing threat of fracking.
The Floridan Aquifer sustains all of Florida. Water is our life, and all religious traditions use water symbolically in rituals. We are bound together by water. We are water. Protecting water sources is self-preservation as well as the preservation of Florida’s bio-diversity. Who are Florida’s water-protectors? How shall people of faith and conscience respond?
Check payments should be made to: Florida Council of Churches, 3838 West Cypress Street, Tampa, FL 33607.
Note there are two registration options: keynote with lunch and full event. The full event includes keynote, lunch, afternoon workshops, dinner, and evening program on the stories of Florida's water.
