As Unitarian Universalists, stewardship of our planet is at the heart of our beliefs and practices. Water symbolizes our connection to each other, to the totality of Life and to our place on the planet (7th Principle). For this worship service, we will welcome Annie Richards, the Chester Riverkeeper to our pulpit.
Annie spent her childhood along the Chester River, and has since held a lifelong love for the landscape, culture and community of the Chester River and the greater Eastern Shore. As the Chester Riverkeeper with ShoreRivers, she is dedicated to protecting and restoring the river’s natural resources. A focus of ShoreRivers is resiliency in the face of climate change, and its intensifying effects on the health of our waterways and watershed communities. Annie will discuss the current effects of climate change, how to prepare for the future — and the importance of hope as we continue this work.
