Are you planning on coming to the Big Tent in Indianapolis, June 30-July 2? There is still time to register. At Big Tent there will be many opportunities to explore how environmental stewardship and faith connect, including at the Peacemaking conference. Sign up for the Peacemaking conference, where Environmental Ministries will be leading a coffee and conversation session. I'll also be there leading a Big Tent common workshop on Earth Care Congregations, and at the Compassion, Peace and Justice booth in the exhibit hall. Read more about the Peacemaking conference, reposted from Swords into Plowshares:
