UCCers Take Part in Global Climate Strike

UCCers Take Part in Global Climate Strike

Share

One main focus of the Vision, Mission and Purpose statement for the newly forming Southern New England Conference of the UCC is a commitment to "making God’s love and justice real by loving our neighbors, children, and all of creation through our collective work."

People from across the three conferences did just that on Friday, Sept. 20, supporting the youth-led Global Climate Strike in places all over the region. These images were captured from Facebook - find more by searching on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtags: #SNEUCC #ClimateStrike #FaithsForFuture #StrikeWithUs .   (See also an article on how conference staff participated.)
