We are fully aware and grieving the loss of the Clean Power Plan and other important air and water safeguards. Still, we believe that together our resistance is strong and our faith sufficient to the hard tasks ahead.
 
As we go about our work at Earth Ministry, we feel the powerful pull of the earth turning that renews our commitment to protect God’s creation and Earth’s ecosystems. We hope April has a similar effect on you and can't wait to see you at these events throughout Earth Month!
