Dear Friends,

After this very full and important week in the US with the Papal visit, I want to remind us all that the NH Conference of the United Church of Christ is providing an event this weekend on environmental stewardship and the effects of climate change.  We hope you have it on your calendars now!

The event, “A New Awakening,” is set for this Friday and Saturday in Concord.  Please click here to see the latest information, details and to register to attend.

We encourage everyone who is able to attend to do so!  It is surely well-timed and I hope all who can be there will make it a priority.  Our awareness of the issues at hand and having the opportunity to get real tools for advocacy are a gift to us from our UCC sisters and brothers!

I will see you there!


Clare J. Chapman
Executive Director
