March, 2009: Ecumenical Advocacy Days: Enough for All Creation
Come to Washington D.C. to learn and organize and visit members of congress. Includes list of sponsors.
March 13-16, 2009
Enough for All Creation is the theme of the seventh annual Ecumenical Advocacy Days
"The Thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10
Join us at the 7th annual Ecumenical Advocacy Days, as we explore ways to bring about a world with Enough for All Creation. Learn about the connections between climate change, migration and poverty in the U.S. and around the world. Come together with faith-based advocates and activists from across the United States in the nationís capitol March 13-16 as we discuss the abundance of our world and how it can be allocated in a way that is fair and just for all creation.
We live in an increasingly interconnected world and have an enormous impact on each other and creation. As the earthís temperature rises we see a strain on resources. Food, while plentiful for some, is desperately scarce for others. Lack of clean water makes children sick and burdens women. Global warming and growing resource deprivation forces some people to migrate and others to wage war over food, water and oil. Our increasingly co-dependent economies lift a few individuals up to great heights while keeping others living lives of destitution.
The conference will be held at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center
Please mark your calendars for March 19 - 22, 2010 to attend the next Ecumenical Advocacy Days Conference.
