February 6-9, 2014, Atlanta, Georgia
This year's theme:
Keeping the Sabbath and Mindfulness as Sustainable Practice
Join United Methodists from around the country to take part in several days of conversations and experiences designed to engage people working for God's creation. The conference is moving from Lake Junaluska to Atlanta, Georgia this year as we get the opportunity to explore a new part of God's creation. We will be hosted by Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. Workshops, chances to experience examples of green living around Atlanta, and great speakers are all a part of this annual event.
This year we welcome Matthew and Nancy Sleeth as our keynote speakers. You can read about the Sleeths here. You can also read more about Matthew's new book about observing the sabbath, 24/6: A Prescription for Healther, Happier Life.
The conference schedule will be similar in format to past Caring for Creation Conferences that have occurred at Lake Junaluska with day trips on Thursday and workshops starting Friday morning and going through Saturday evening. Sunday worship will be at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church starting at 11am (typically ending by 12:30pm), with the Sleeths preaching. Transportation will be provided for participants from PRUMC to Glenn for the service and back, if needed.
