Fossil Free
Impassioned climate change activists all over the world may have
a new and entirely unexpected ally in their cause: the financial sector.  
Groups of concerned citizens have gathered their resources to place
 pressure on wealthy institutions who invest in the fossil fuel industry.
The new documentary Fossil Free chronicles their mission.

The film contains portraits of those who are working diligently to propel
this grassroots movement. Many of them are young, and they view
themselves as the last generation who can truly make a difference in
 curbing the climate change epidemic. They're determined to pick up the
slack from an older generation who remains apathetic to these pressing issues.

The climate change movement is multi-faceted, and victories
can be won on many sides if we remain fully engaged in the issue.
Fossil Free is a valuable examination of one such effort
to contain this growing crisis. Running time:  48 minutes

Full Moon Drumming for Peace
Sunday, December 3 ~ 4:15 pm
Goshen Church of Christ Congregational
Drumming for Peace at sunset on the evening of the full moon
takes place at Church of Christ Congregational, 5 Old Middle Street,
at the intersection of Routes 4 and 63 in Goshen, CT.

Come and join us as we send the energy created
by our drumming out into the universe for world peace.
Bring your own drum/s or use one of the drums
or rhythm instruments that will be available.

If the flapping of the wings of a butterfly in South America
can have an affect on the weather in Africa, then surely the
energy created by our drumming can have an affect on world peace.

Come and join us and drum your heart happy.
If it isn't raining or cold we will gather outside
on the lawn, so bring a chair as well as your drum.
If it's too cold to be outdoors, we will be in the
fellowship hall in the basement below the sanctuary.

Participants may bring their own drums or use the
 drums and rhythm instruments that will be provided.
Any type of hand drum may be used.
All drummers or people who would like to become
drummers are welcome; no experience is necessary.

Drumming for Peace is a program begun by Drums Around the World.
The concept is that drummers will drum for peace in their time zone for
about an hour sending the energy that is created out into the universe for
world peace and then other drummers will begin drumming in their time zone
and thus pass the drumming around the globe.
MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH

There was no resting for the congregants of the Church of Christ Congregational
in Goshen following Sunday's service.Congregants grabbed shovels and rakes
and spread mulch in the flower beds outside the chuch in a show of their
ongoing commitment to beautifying the church grounds.

The work came two weeks after the congregation received a
Green Houses of Worship Award from the Interreligious Eco-Justice Network,
which encourages houses of worship \to implement eco-friendly
measures in buildings and in the congregation.

The church’s buildings have been audited for energy usage and retrofits
and energy upgrades have been made. Other measures include recycling,
choice of paper products, cleaning supplies, lawn and garden
products and reusable cups and dishes. BZ photos
