Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon's tenth annual Oregon Interfaith Earth Summit will take place in faith communities all over Oregon with the theme, "Care for Our Common Home: Building Neighborhoods for Climate Resilience."
This hybrid event will start with a Zoom Virtual Plenary Session at First Presbyterian Church, followed by an in-person discussion and local vigil.
We will hear from a leader of Together New Orleans; watch a video about the Commissary Project at Warm Springs, OR; EMO will describe their Resilient Communities Cohort for Congregations and the OIPL Advocacy Team; and Oregon Representatives Khanh Pham and Mark Gamba will speak about the 2023 legislative session.
Following the Plenary we will hear from Rogue Climate and Ashland Climate Collaborative with local host Bob Morse facilitating in-person discussion focusing on relationship-building and how communities of faith can participate in community and climate resilience in our neighborhoods and regions.
Each regional gathering will end with a climate vigil from 5-5:15 p.m.
