Pastor Gregory Says…

Last Sunday the city of Palo Alto hosted a conference on climate change with over 300 people, multiple city officials, long term residents, High School students, and a few of us clergy. The city representatives shared their vision for the continued transformation of the city in ways that further honor and cherish the land, plants, and non-human animals we live alongside. The conversations were inspiring, especially because some of the young people were  vocal in their yearning to discover stronger connections between their spiritual practices and their sustainability practices.

 During the week we hosted a brown-bag luncheon with 15 local pastors and Rabbis; I met with pastor Kaloma Smith of the AME church for an inspiring conversation about my call in ministry and how we can partner together in future programs; I met two gay men from Stanford’s Queerituality club and they invited me back to join their club’s faith-conversations this semester; and on Saturday I had the great pleasure of eating the amazing cooking of Greg Griffey as he and his husband hosted me for lunch. Thank you for another great week!
