When oil spills occur on our coast and fracking wells contaminate groundwater — what does it mean to “re-member” Christ’s body when the body of the Earth is broken again and again today?
The Communion meal allows us to remember the one whose brokenness heals our lives. Only then, anew with Christ, can we return to our world’s healing.
We will be gathering for an ecologically-focused Communion meal, as we prepare to join thousands in the march and rally opposing the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion.
From 10:00 a.m. until the march leaves at noon:
Quiet rest and refreshments, and an opportunity to sign the Pledge of Resistance with other people of faith.
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Eucharist/Communion: all are welcome
Individuals and communities of faith can meet and join the rally together (bring your banners, as we will march as a group)
12:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Those who cannot make the march can support the event with their prayers
