On the feast of Pentecost we can all ask ourselves: What “mighty acts of God” have I seen and spoken about?
One obvious answer is marveling at the unfolding of springtime into summer. This further gives us an opportunity to speak about an upcoming opportunity to participate in “Connecting the dots…food.faith.climate” workshop being held Sunday, May 31, 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm at Prairiewoods Spirituality Center, 120 E. Boyson Rd, Hiawatha, Ia. The event is a program of Iowa Interfaith Power and Light and it is co-hosted by: First Presbyterian Church, First Congregational United Church of Christ, and St. Pius X Catholic Church.
Climate change is related to our food choices. When we sit down to dinner, we may not think about global warming, but one third of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are connected to our food system. At every meal, we can make a real difference that ensures a more climate-friendly food system. And luckily, the ethical choices are also pleasurable ones that improve the health of the planet and our bodies.
Iowa Interfaith Power and Light’s Food, Faith, and Climate program provides education on how our food practices contribute to climate change and explores how our faith traditions call us to respond with practical solutions.
