This Spring, we continue our journey together:
Towards the Healing and Fullness of our Lands, Waters and Communities.
Caring for All Creation is an opportunity to gather with the diverse peoples who share concern over the stewardship of our planet. This is a series of weekly gatherings offered from March 3rd – May 13th, 2014.
All are welcome – All are needed! You can participate as a community member or for credit as a student through Vancouver School of Theology. You can participate by attending, tuning into #ds106radio to listen live, and/or engaging with this community by blogging. You can come along with all of us as we engage the weekly readings and activities.
Caring for All Creation is an outgrowth of Spirit of the Land, an effort to build a Community Land-Ethic, begun nearly 3 years ago in Camrose, Alberta. The premise of Spirit of the Land is that in order to see, think and act in the new ways required of us, we must do so within a caring community. Over these years of stewarding this effort, a community in Camrose and Alberta is blossoming. So, now we have been reflecting on: how do we not only continue deepening our community in Camrose and Alberta, but also connect with other communities, and deepen all these relationships simultaneously?
Our reflections on this question have led us to Caring for All Creation. Over the years, we have learned that a shared web-place can connect one physical space to another. By sharing a web-place, we hope to connect and deepen communities – from Camrose to Vancouver, Iqaluit to Oliver.
Come, gather with us in this effort. Do so in whatever ways you feel inspired. You are welcome and needed.
