In a moment of deep ecological crisis, the 2023 EcoFaith Summit calls us to become part of the Holy Spirit’s subversive plot to pollinate an alternative way of being human for the sake of life.

In this great plot, faith communities of every size and place can be demonstration plots, pollinating alternative ways of living. We all steward plots of land, even tiny ones, which can become pollinator habitat. In this critical and decisive time, a Kairos moment, what we do with our specific plots wherever we are, matters. How we live the Gospel paradox that God’s power is shown in weakness can engage us in active hope amid the growing crisis we face.

Through worship, a keynote presentation by Margot Monson, entomologist and beekeeper, firsthand stories, conversations, and engagement sessions, together we will be empowered to be participants in this unfolding plot.
