ASKING

 

  • What is the nature of the clear, immediate and immense ecological crisis in our region and the world?
  • What are the impacts of this crisis on our families, our congregation, and our community?
  • What are the sources of this crisis?
  • What are the sources of spiritual wisdom and power we can draw on to creatively and powerfully engage this crisis, and create new possibilities with it?

 

AND SAYING

 

“YES”

  • To the astonishing 13.9 billion year story of God’s Creation.
  • To the glory of the world around us.
  • To God’s continuing acts of Creation, Incarnation, and Resurrection.

 

“NO”

  • To our own actions that desecrate God’s Creation.
  • To those ways of our lives as humans that destroy, disrupt, and deplete “this fragile earth, our island home.”
  • To economic, political, social, and cultural forces that work to assault and plunder the sacred life of the planet.

 

“AND YES”

  • To envisioning and living into a new world beyond fossil fuels.
  • To engaging in the Great Work of being co-creators as God gives birth to the New Creation.
  • To working for a planet worthy of our ancestors’ dream and our descendants’ well-being.
