Happy Thanksgiving!

All over the world people are responding to the climate crisis. How are you 
giving thanks for those who are part of the change? Check out this interesting 
project and consider #climatethanks.  Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light is 
busy thanking all the incredible faith leaders who have become activated to get 
the work done.

We need your help though! We are writing to invite you to an important 
community building fundraiser and celebration on December 5th.

It is not often we can speak directly with someone who has viewed first hand 
the impact of the climate crisis on a major world system. Minnesota Interfaith 
Power & Light board member Chuck Dayton likens his summer journey on a research 
sailing vessel inspecting the health of coral reefs 3,000 miles into the 
central Pacific ocean as akin to Will Steger's experience of loosing the artic. 
 See Chuck's long article in the Star Tribune on this journey.

Join us a week from Thursday, on December 5th as Chuck shares his journey in a 
stunning slideshow: "The Ocean as a Harbinger of Change", and help us raise the 
funds needed to take on this crisis in our faith communities.  This will also 
be an opportunity to hear from our new Executive Director, Julia Nerbonne, 
about our new approach to relational organizing in congregations, and the 
exciting new programs we are rolling out this spring.  Gather with others 
deeply concerned about caring for Creation. There will be appetizers and 
libations available prior and dessert and coffee after Chuck's talk.  Join with 
us, eyes and hearts open, as we face our grief, embrace our hope and 'kindle 
the spark' of this faith movement that demands action now.
