Earth Day is coming, friends! As in other years, environmental activists will honor the Earth on April 22th, and MPC will recognize Earth Sunday on April 18th. But, of course, our stewardship to the Earth is never confined to just one Sunday, and so our ministry focus for April will be a partnership between the SAGE and Farm to Stoop ministries.
We will spend time in April connecting our SAGE ministry with Farm to Stoop. Our friend Derrick Weston at Rockrose Farm will be joining us at MPC for a dialogue sermon on April 11 and Atticus Zavaletta from the North Avenue Mission will be here on April 25. We know that food security, social justice and care for the land are all connected and look forward to hearing more.
For Earth Sunday itself, April 18, SAGE is very excited to host a special service of reflection dedicated to the Earth. After the worship service, we will host a viewing of the
short film Earth, Water, Woman, about a community in Trinidad and Tobago inspired by their faith to protect and restore their watershed and local ecosystem. After viewing, SAGE will lead a discussion of the film for the congregation. All are welcome!
