Stewardship of the Land conference
Posted by on May 03, 2010
Join us for Stewardship of the Land, May 21-23, 2010, a Christian community gathering at Bluestone Camp & Retreat in Hinton, West Virginia. We invite you to share in a fun weekend of fellowship, worship, discussion, and reflection with young adults participating in the Eco-Stewards Training Program. Everyone is welcome. This weekend retreat will include workshops, discussions, outdoor activities, and worship that will inspire us to act as stewards of the land. At the event we will also commission young adults in the Eco-Stewards Program, who will have just completed a week-long training on ecological stewardship principles and practices in West Virginia.
Keynote speaker: Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, a sustainable farmer who was featured in The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan and recent documentaries Food Inc. and Fresh: The Movie.
Event Highlights: Workshops on environmental stewardship and food issues, West Virginia Local Food Feast, and contemplative worship led by Rev. Kate McGregor-Mosley, Director of Earth Covenant Ministry.
Who should attend: Anyone interested in earth care. The event will be perfect for church groups and campus ministries that are active or looking to get started on environmental issues. Children, teens and adults are welcome. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
