|KAIROS Regina invites you on a journey of faith, one that challenges our comfortable lives and changes the very buildings we worship in. On October 15, KAIROS Regina will host a one-day hybrid conference called, “Creation Care in our Places of Prayer: Energy Retrofits and other Faith-based Climate Action.”
In the leadup to that session, they offer these articles to prepare our hearts and minds for the deep transformation that is needed:
Our Call to Care for Creation
How Much Shall We Give
Yeast to Raise the Ambition
Cast the Net Wide
Join us next weekend to learn and share and begin to plan a path forward together.
