Our shared practices amplify actions that network members at one or more of our churches are already excited about. This choice is an invitation to bring the messy problem of our dependence on metals, what happens when we mine them and Indigenous People’s land rights into our prayer lives. Network member Shalom Mennonite Fellowship, Tucson, Ariz., has embraced one such situation in their region.
