Calling All Conscious Elders: Gathering for the Earth!
Introduction to Conscious Elders Network
May 14th 2pm-5pm
Fort Mason Center, San Francisco
You are invited to an introductory event in partnership with Interfaith Power and Light and special guest speaker Father John Coleman. This is a community gathering to explore together what it means for each of us to engage in our world as a conscious elder. How can we offer our multiple talents and resources in service of preserving and protecting life for all generations to come?
We will have the opportunity to hear from Fr. John Coleman, S.J., Associate Pastor at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco. He is on the Steering Committee of Interfaith Power and Light and has long written and spoken on our roles in "Care for Creation", Climate Change, Social Justice, and the Environment.
We will also connect and inspire each other as we find ways to support each other in our work for the world. We will present several ways to engage with other Elders in your area. You may form Elder Circles, Elder Climate Action Groups, or groups addressing an issue of importance in your community.
