O God of Life, Your Waters Flow

We Were Born Out of the Waters

2017 Peaceseeker Award Goes to Abby Mohaupt of Fossil Free PCUSA for Prophetic & Pastoral Leadership for Creation Care

A member of PPF’s Activist Council, Abby brings together a sheer love of God’s creation and the concern that climate change is the greatest threat to co-existence and peace ever known.

Their water is our water.

A Reflection on Standing Rock: Water Protectors, The Law, and Economics

By John Gianoulis, a first year student at Underground Seminary who visited Standing Rock one month ago

How to Support the Water Protectors Right Now

One way that we can all surround the Water Protectors with love is by making calls to key stakeholders in the Dakota Access Pipeline. Even if you cannot go to Standing Rock or go to a Solidarity Action this week (there will be many with a Global Day of Action on Dec 1--we will update as we know more!), you can make calls or you can organize an action of your own.

En Route to Standing Rock

I write this as I’m sitting at the breakfast table of Abbi and Ben Heimach-Snipes in Chicago, where we stayed last night after six of us drove from New York City to Chicago. Once we got here we met Colleen Earp, who flew in to Chicago from Richmond, Virginia. In a few hours we will be commissioned at the Friendship Presbyterian Church in Chicago and then the six of us from New York, plus Ben and Colleen will head toward Minneapolis, where we’ll have dinner at the Church of All Nations and pick up three others in our delegation before heading on to Standing Rock.
