A Sustainable Faith Conference
St. Petersburg, FL–On April 23-24, 2010, the Missio Dei Community in St. Petersburg, Florida, hosts a conversation for those who value caring for the poor, human rights issues, and sustainable living.
Kicking off this two-day event with a talk and an interactive workshop is best-selling author and well-known social activist Shane Claiborne, who travels extensively speaking about peacemaking and social justice.
Shane is joined by writers Danielle Shroyer, Spencer Burke, Nick Fiedler, and John Franke. Workshop leaders include local practitioners Christopher Dixon, Charity Dixon, Cheri Honkala, Bruce Wright, and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers among many others.
Together, participants will explore the question: Can we be committed to social justice as a sustainable way of life?
There is an opportunity on April 22 to journey to Immokalee, Florida, to meet with migrant farm workers to learn about their progress fighting for fair wages and working conditions.
Through April 18 preregistration is $65 for the weekend and $49 for students, pastors, and social workers. Beginning April 19, the full registration price is $85 per person.
