Listening to Creation–Interfaith Service at La Jolla Shores

This summer we have witnessed stifling heat in Europe, flooding in South Korea and India, and massive wildfires and drought in California.  Climate change is here and now–and getting worse.  As persons of faith we are called to own the problem and move to act. 

On Wednesday, September 21 we will hold Listening to Creation: The Earth Speaks–The Time is Now, an interfaith service moving from Lamentation to Stewardship to Joy.  All are welcome when we gather at 5:00 pm at La Jolla Shores Park, 8300 Camino del Oro for a BYO meal (please BYO beach chairs too)The service will begin at 6:00 pm and conclude by 6:45.  All of our faith traditions call us to attentiveness and deep listening. Out of this attention, we act!!

This event is sponsored by a group of local faith communities and the Interfaith Coalition for Earth Justice.
