Jun. 23rd (Sun.) Care for Creation Workshop Suquamish United Church of Christ
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
As a member of the Bainbridge Island North Kitsap Interfaith Council's Climate Circle (and Climate Conversation group), I've been invited to offer an inspiring, guiding, and hopeful workshop just after the worship service. We will spend a nourishing hour being introduced to and practicing a few nature-based, creative experiences for reflection, intention, and stamina as we deepen our ways of caring for creation and engaging our part in climate change solutions. This is a follow-up to the “Tending Hope” talk from May 12th that was part of the Care for Creation series. We will enjoy a relaxed space and facilitated activities in which we can pursue the fullness of what it means to spiritually engage our place in the web of life, the gift of creation.

We will use the values, principles, and practices of Compassionate Spiritual Ecology as the foundation for our time together.
