Mark Burnham to speak at Blueridge Sustainability Initiative

Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute

From the advertisement:

The Bible does not use the term sustainability, but it contains many references to the concepts of environmental protection and social justice that are core to achieving sustainability. Churches, synagogues and other religious institution have long recognized this and have undertaken a wide range of initiatives to improve both their own and community sustainability. On October 17, representatives of local churches, synagogues and faith-based institutions will discuss these initiatives. Our speakers will include:

  • Mark Burnham, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church
  • Richard Fireman, Public Policy Coordinator, North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light, a program of the NC Council of Churches;
  • Susan Garrett, Green Jobs Director for Asheville-Buncombe Christian Community Ministry (ABCCM); and
  • Howard Jaslow, Past President of Congregation Beth HaTephila.

Join us for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion.

The October 17th Green Monday will be held in the Board Room of the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce Building, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. Green Mondays are funded by a grant from Progress Energy, with support from the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce and Purplecat Networks.
