Easter People: Faith Practice and Climate Justice
Join us as we follow the Episcopal Church curriculum on climate justice. This series takes as its starting point that climate change is human-caused, destructive to people and places, and a long-range unintended consequence of the industrial revolution. Our faith is that God has conquered sin and death through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As members of his body we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to act as witnesses of God’s power in the world. Practicing faith means seeking a way of life that brings healing to our planet and people. We do this individually and collectively as disciples. Join fellow St. James’sers for Bible study, discussion and reflection to learn more about climate change, about how God is calling us to be stewards of God’s creation, and to discuss what resurrection and healing for the planet and people might look like. Then come to our Sunday Adult Forum on Rogation Sunday, May 22, to learn more about our diocesan Creation Care Task Force. For more information contact the Host Coordinator: Jane Dowrick, email@example.com (804-334-0117).
*SUGGESTED PREPARATION FOR EACH WEDNESDAY SESSION: Prepare a prayer table or space (could be on a small tray) with a candle (real or battery operated), a Bible, and objects from nature such as leaves, pine cones, feathers, a small bowl of water, seeds – really whatever your heart desires to represent God’s creation, and to be ready to access scripture.
