Since its inception in 2011, the Peace Conference at Rolling Ridge has served as an important platform for healthy dialogue and inspirational hope. Diverse speakers over the years have addressed issues of peace-making, Earth tending, and interfaith reverence.  This year, we will look at the spiritual foundations of environmental justice in the Abrahamic (Jewish, Christian, and Muslim) faith tradition. 

During the Saturday afternoon plenary, interfaith environmental leaders will share about the importance of creation care in their tradition and then discuss the common roots that unite them for action. Our panel includes Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, Father Norman Comtois, and Rabbi Judy Kummer, with Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas as moderator. 

Sunday afternoon workshops will delve deeper into Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim eco-spirituality, while also exploring practical opportunities to protect our common planetary home. 

During our closing service, we will celebrate our unity through song and prayer.
