Community to Pray for Climate Conference Success

On Monday, December 1 at Good Shepherd Church in Hayesville, The Lake Chatuge GreenFaith Team will be holding a non denominational prayer vigil for the success of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change starting on December 1 in Lima, Peru. This is the 20th such Convention and the time is crucial. The world's leaders must come up with solutions all can agree on to stem the growth of climate change causing weather disasters not seen before in modern times.

Led by Dr. Vernon Dixon, the community will use the power of prayer asking for guidance for the world's leaders in their quest for solutions. Dr. Dixon and his wife, Mary Joyce, are well known for leading centering prayer retreats and missions throughout the south. An active member of Immaculate Heart of Mary, he leads their GreenFaith Team. The couple recently participated in the Citizens March on Climate Change in New York where they attended the world church leaders meeting.

Brad Rouse will also report on the recent Catholic Charities grant given to the Energy Saving Volunteers program which will make it possible to improve another 16 families homes to save energy costs and improve their standard of living.

All are welcome.  

The vigil will start at 6:30 pm and dessert will follow.

For more information, call Dr. Dixon at 706-896-8275 or Brad Rouse at 404-754-0892.
