About this Offering
The ecological crisis calls out for prayer. It calls out for a growing awareness that we belong to the Earth and that the totality of the web of life is holy. How does God speak to us through the natural world? What gives us energy, hope and spiritual resilience as we struggle to protect God's creation? How do we move through denial and despair into the joy of resurrected living? Held in a beautiful natural setting on the fringes of Long Island Sound, the retreat will explore a theological framework for “holding” our concern for the Earth, its creatures, elements, and people. The day-program, which is being offered in collaboration with Mercy Ecology, will include presentations, prayer, guided meditation, small and large group conversation, singing, and free time. The program is for people of all (or no) faith traditions. It is for anyone concerned about protecting a planet in peril.
