ECO-FAITH AT THE CAPITOL Please join the Eco-Faith team in Interfaith Action at the State Capitol—Governor Walz’s Office, Friday, Feb. 8, from 11:30 am -1:30 pm for the Water is Life/Stop Line 3. This Action is organized by our Partner, Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light (MNIPL), and will be a prayerful protest, meditation, and sacred ritual to send a message to Governor Walz. This oil pipeline threatens our clean water and air. It’s an investment in fossil fuels infrastructure that’s driving climate crisis. It would pass across hundreds of miles of treaty-protected land that Native communities depend on for drinking water and wild rice gathering.

ADULTS INTERESTED IN BEING BAPTIZED, please reach out to Pastor Jeff or Pastor Jay in the coming weeks. The Easter Vigil, to be held the Saturday evening before Easter Sunday (April 20) is traditionally a time when adults and children receive this sacrament. Even if you feel uncertain but are open to exploring the sacrament and its meaning, we are eager to talk to you. If you have not been baptized but hear the voice of love coming in these waters, speak to any of the pastors. We welcome all, without exception, to this gift of Baptism.
