Words of Spirit ; Ways of Action 

2020/21 Virtual Summit Series

The RAICA Summit has gone Virtual, because now more than ever it is important to keep the work of reversing climate change and strengthening our faith communities going. 

Each month we we will alternate between a short prerecorded video  by a spiritual leader in our community and a workshop style webinar to share best practices and answer questions on a particular action that you or your faith community can take to reverse climate change.

Kicking off the virtual series is this video message from Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede, the Abbot and Director of the Rochester Zen Center.
