GreenFaith Wy’East Circle Interfaith Service

During the #EndFossilFuels global mobilization last weekend, the newly founded GreenFaith Wy’east Circle held a powerful Interfaith Service in Support of the Youth Climate Strike in Portland, OR and in solidarity with the New York March to End Fossil Fuels! At the service, they talked about why they were there as people of faith, shared teachings, led songs, and held mindfulness meditation. They then continued to put their faith into action by joining the Portland Youth Climate Strike March.

Special thanks to Domyo Burk, a Soto Zen Buddhist Priest, lead teacher of Bright Way Zen, and to Leah Jay for the creation of GreenFaith Wy’east along with their inaugural interfaith service.
