Descendants Day - Loving Our Neighbor Through Time
06/30/2013 04:00 p.m. – 08:00 p.m. @ Dr. Sehbi's farm, 893 North Fairfield Rd in Beavercreek
FOOD Do we have a "waist" problem with food? What about a "waste" problem? Many of us have a complicated relationship with food. Let's look at our eating habits in light of God's creation and His will for our health and the health of our planet.
Every year, Creation Connection hosts an interfaith gathering to pray and educate around an issue of environmental justice. Descendants Day emphasizes Loving Your Neighbor Through Time, that is, reflecting on the importance of our choices on the lives of future generations. We share a meal and spend time in fun and fellowship as well. Several faith traditions provide leadership in prayer.
Let Descendants Day this year be a time of prayerful reflection on care of the earth, and our call to live sustainably.

This promises to be a relaxing, Spirit-filled experience for all. Please consider joining us for this outdoor spiritual adventure in God’s great creation. After the program, all are invited to bring a brown bag lunch and share a meal in the Christian tradition.
