The Great Lakes Creation Care Collaborative Invites You to Join the Discussion 

The Great Lakes Creation Care Collaborative will offer a series of Zoom webinars designed to help individuals and congregations become better advocates for God’s great gift of planet Earth. The collaborative is a joint effort of the UCC’s Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota conference. The three-part series was developed in response to threats to our watersheds from fossil fuels and chemicals, and informed by the potential harm to the economic, spiritual and physical health of indigenous peoples. The webinars will approach the issues through the lenses of indigenous rights; corporate divestment; and liturgical language that reflects on the health of the planet.
