2015 Florida Interfaith
On April 10-11 in greater Orlando, gather with other spiritually focused persons who want to act in healing the Earth. We know from within the time has come for action. Where to start? What to do? Who will join us? The 2015 climate conference will address those questions.
Healing is at the center of almost all forms of spirituality across the many religious traditions. As we explore our own healing (or salvation), we are emboldened and empowered to bring that healing into the world. Our spirituality becomes the bridge to go from healing to action. There is a deep ecology of the person that reveals a great compassion for the ecology of the earth.
We’ll learn about the immediate issues of impact in Florida’s civic life, acquire new awareness about the climate urgency, and build a network across and through our faith communities.
We can live well together on the Earth. Our distinct faiths all encourage it. Join the experience of peace with all in action for the Earth.
Conference coordination is by Florida Council of Churches in conjunction with Unitarian Universalist Justice Florida. Particular thanks go to Dr. Joel Hunter and Northland Church for hosting the conference.
“We are so honored to host an event that will equip people from many faith communities to do the earth good! This challenge is too big for any one faith family to make much of a difference by itself. Not only is our environment important to our health, our action on its behalf is important for our moral sense of doing what is right for all people and other species of animals and plants. In Florida, we are especially vulnerable to the consequences of climate change, so I am very grateful to the Florida Council of Churches for convening this meeting of influential leaders.”
