The deep bays of the Puget Sound, the rain that greens the land, many rivers, creeks and aquifers that flow into our homes and churches: we know well our local waters. We also know that continued pollution, climate change, threatened species, and water privatization spell trouble for the flowing of this free gift from the Creator.
In this conference, we explore water – the one thing upon which all life depends – and Christian commitments to care for our local waters in western Washington: an ethic of care flowing from Christian worship. Join us as we consider the ways in which worship, learning and advocacy invite congregations to give thanks to God for this primal gift and promote environmental justice
