Join our friends at the Radical Support Collective (who will be offering a workshop at the Pittsburgh conference) for an online webinar for social change leaders who want to sustain themselves as they work for a life-sustaining future.

The movement for climate justice needs you to be a fine-tuned instrument for strategic social change. Too many of us are burning our candle at both ends, being martyrs for the things we love, and exhausting ourselves as the cost of bringing about a life-sustaining future. You might find yourself saying, “this year I resolve to do it differently” only to look back 12 months later saying, “so much for that idea.”

What if there was a better way?

In this workshop, Radical Support Collective coaches Jess, Seth, and Anastasia will support you to create your own unique Life Blueprint for 2020, so you can get clear on exactly where you want to put your energy and focus on what lights you up rather than what burns you out. Start doing your change making work with more ease, effectiveness and joy.

October 2019 Newsletter-Part 3: Free Webinar on Tree Planting

Grab a friend or collaborator from your congregation and join us on Thursday, November 14th from 7:00-8:15 PM for a free webinar that will help you learn about siting and planting native trees on your land. Trees reduce mowing, act as windbreaks, provide shade and habitat, and provide a sense of time we simply don’t get from calendars or watches — and they are amazing carbon capture machines.  Brenda Sieglitz and BJ Small will join us from 10 Million Trees to share their wisdom, and let you in on some opportunities to apply for trees.  People and congregations in Lancaster, York, Adams, Franklin, and Cumberland counties, and areas in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed may have some additional opportunities. Registration is free but required.

We close with this excerpt or a prayer from Rabbi Arthur Waskow, and hope you will click through to read the whole prayer, carrying it with you as you move through your days.

We are the generation that stands between the fires:
Behind us the flame and smoke
that rose from Auschwitz and from Hiroshima;
From the burning forests of the Amazon,
From the hottest years of human history
that bring upon us
Melted ice fields, Flooded cities, Scorching droughts.
Before us the nightmare of a Flood of Fire,
The heat and smoke that could consume all Earth.
It is our task to make from fire not an all-consuming blaze
But the light in which we see each other fully.
All of us different, All of us bearing
One Spark.
— an excerpt from Between the Fires: A Kavvanah for Lighting Candles of Commitment, by Rabbi Arthur Waskow;
