Deepening connections in Eastern Washington

Deepening connections in Eastern Washington

Faith communities in the dry eastern half of Washington State have unique insights about preserving watersheds, agricultural lands, clean air, and safe chemicals. On recent trips, Earth Ministry/WAIPL staff have been warmly received in Richland, Walla Walla, Ritzville, and Pullman.

Shalom United Church of Christ graciously hosted us for three community presentations on the risks of coal export in the Tri-Cities area. In Walla Walla, 25 religious leaders attended our conversation on coal. Later in the fall, members of multiple faith traditions gathered at Interfaith House in Pullman to share faith-based environmental stewardship practices and to delve into safe chemicals legislation. A wonderful bonus of that trip was a tour of a wheat farm in Ritzville by leaders of Zion Philadelphia Congregational UCC.
