Nature Photo Contest
Rec Digital NC Nature Photo Contest - Chris Lutes has an idea that is percolating for a Wednesday Night Dinner program. Submit your most beautiful, cutest or most intriguing NC natural spot photos. Photos of little known beauty spots close to home are especially encouraged. Submit 1 to 3 photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. The plan would be to show them on the overhead screen, allow folks to share a 1-2 minute story or narration. Then we can vote for fun things like the: cutest animal; strangest critter; best sunset; closest/most surprising beauty spot; best adventure. You scan an old photo or photograph (a color or black/white) print. Once we get a good collection we can schedule the program!
Prayer Walk and Kid's Nature Scavenger Hunt
Find the box on our property for a guided meditation and reusable nature scavenger hunt sheets. Come each week as there will be a new devotion for you.
Youth Fundraiser Trivia Night
Many ways to get involved!
The Bans off our Bodies interest group at Binkley will host a Bans off our Bodies ritual on Saturday, February 11, from 3-5pm. This will be an in-entional safe space created to allow us as a community and individuals within that community access to the wide range of emotions we're experiencing particularly following the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. There will be space to voice our fears, anger, confusion, disorientation, sadness etc. All genders are welcome to join us for this experience. We are excited to provide this opportunity for another way for Binkley to engage in our pursuit of justice for all.
Donations are appreciated!

Creation Justice Ministries director, Karyn Bigelow, expresses the joy and hopes of many climate advocates across the U.S. who see the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” as a “big win” if it passes. She lauds those “who have worked many years for this moment” hoping that “this historic legislation sets a pattern for Congress to prioritize climate justice for all of God’s creation.”
Please pray that this proposal becomes law. Also, you can join in support by phoning our U.S. Senators. Since we have Republican senators unlikely to support it, we can still call to tell them how important we feel it is to support this bill and climate action in general.
To leave messages, call Senator Richard Burr at 202-224-3154 (you’ll get a machine) or Senator Thom Tillis at 202-224-6342 (maybe a person will answer). Just give your name, zip code in NC, and a brief polite message!
Thanks! Nancy Corson Carter, facilitator, Earth Care Committee at the Rec
