First Annual National UCC Earth Day Summit Held in Minneapolis

“There is no greater power on Earth than Story.” – Libba Bray

The Minnesota Conference and Mayflower UCC in Minneapolis hosted the United Church of Christ’s First Annual Earth Day Summit on April 22. It was a big day for the UCC, our first national Earth Day celebration, thanks to Zoom and livestream and the leadership of Brooks Brendt.

We fell in love with our denomination all of over again as we witnessed the faithful, powerful, tenacious, sacrificial actions all around the country of this small but mighty denomination.

National UCC Summit (virtual on Zoom) featured renowned climate activist, theologian, and author Jim Antal as the keynote speaker and a panel of expert Minnesota organizers.
