"We need to move past disbelief, apathy, and the fears holding back ecological balance and recognize climate change for the moral issue that it is.  We as individuals are connected with all creation on Earth."
This message brought a capacity crowd to Good Counsel Hill in Mankato on Saturday, November 9th, for the Eighth Annual Earth Conference sponsored by the Center for Earth Spirituality and Earth Ministry.  This year's conference focus was Climate Change:  Finding Hope for a Healthy Planet. 

CURE Senior Director, Duane Ninneman, announced today that CURE's biggest celebration will have a new look next year.

"Our usual dinner and cocktails, silent auction and awards event is being redesigned to be more family friendly, outdoors focused, with more opportunities to engage a broader cross section of CURE's membership and the public.  The event will also answer member calls for more workshops and featured presentations."

I don't know if any of you remember the weather this past Wednesday, November 15, but it was beautiful.  After the bone-chilling, heart-breaking, brassica-killing frost of Sunday night, the earth saw fit to grant us a sunny day with a high of 55, and the staff of CURE celebrated with a little road-side clean-up shindig.
