Our Executive Director the Rev. Nurya Love Parish is available to speak to your congregation in person or online. She has spoken to hundreds and to two or three, as a convention keynote and as a small group leader. Regular presentation topics:
“Christianity, Climate, and Creation” - Developing a practice of Christianity that is fully integrated with the care of Creation is essential. How is Plainsong Farm, as one living laboratory responding to God’s call, contributing to that work? What are the Biblical roots of this ministry, and what does it look like day to day?
“Next Steps in Food Ministry” - Christians have been providing food to those who hunger for countless generations. In every generation, this work is done differently. How are Christians rethinking food ministry today? How can your church help grow a more resilient and equitable food system for the future?
Rev. Parish is also available as a guest preacher for congregations. The cost is generally $125 for an hour presentation, with exceptions made for special circumstances. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and bookings.
