Earthkeepers is hosting a pre-rally service for a time of prayer and centering followed by an ecologically-focused Communion meal. We will then be joining Climate Convergence Metro Vancouver in the People’s Climate March: Job, Justice, and Climate.
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.
Will you join us on April 29 at St. James’ Anglican Church? Bring your motivation for marching to our sign-making session, join us later for the Communion and prayer service, or finally — meet us at the march at Science World.
