Join us for the 9th annual national Caring for Creation Conference, this year focusing on food, food systems, and faith.  At its core, this conference is about people and their interactions with the Creation through food and food production. This conference is designed to help participants to think and pray deeply about food: the way we produce it, the way we consume it, and its importance in our faith. This 2-day event will feature keynote speakers including Norman Wirzba of Duke University, Jennifer Ayres of Emory University's Candler School of Theology, and Alice Rolls of Georgia Organics. In addition to special speakers and panelists, there will be workshops, working groups, and tours of Truly Living Well, Global Growers, and the Atlanta Beltline! Register for the conference today!

 

Minority, need-based, and North Georgia pastoral staff scholarships are available. Please contact Michael Black for details (contact information below).

 

The conference will be held this year at Decatur First UMC, a short walk from Atlanta's Decatur MARTA station.
