Trinity Church announces Sacred Water discussion panels

Trinity Church in Shelburne will host two discussion panels in November focusing on local water and its importance to our lives and spirituality. The first panel is Nov. 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Trinity parish hall and will focus on issues with our local watershed and Lake Champlain and what citizens can do to help protect and preserve this resource.

The panel will feature experts in our local watershed including representatives from the Nature Conservancy, Shelburne and Hinesburg watershed boards, professional hydrologists, and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office. Light refreshments will be available for all attending.

The second panel will be Nov. 15 and it will focus on the spiritual aspects of water. This will include leaders from the Christian, Islamic, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Abenaki traditions. The conversation will look at how water is used in and influences those traditions and the impact of polluted water on various aspects of those traditions. Also 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Trinity parish hall; light refreshments.

These forums are free. Please RSVP at the church website, in the News and Events section.
