There are four upcoming international events that we should keep in mind and prayer for beginning today:
1. The Churches 'Season of Creation' - Sept. 1-Oct.4, 2019
2. The UN Climate Summit , New York, Sept. 23, 2019
3. The Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region, to be held in Rome from October 6-27, 2019
4. The Santiago Climate Change Conference, Chile, Dec. 2-13, 2019.
I will have more to say on our being "Artisans of Hope" in the coming days. I think that when I am grateful, it is easier to be hopeful as I am seeing the positive and thanking for the good.
