International lecturer & consultant in the areas of climate change and globalization|
Emmanuel College and the Ruah Community invite you to this exciting workshop exploring a spirituality of resistance as a moral imperative calling people of all traditions to build a more just and compassionate world. Alternatives are in the making.
"Humankind stands at a turning point in history. Do we continue on a fast track toward climate disaster or through human courage and creativity can we forge a sustainable relationship between the human species and our planetary home?
The moral challenge is heightened by matters of climate justice: those most vulnerable to the ravages of climate change are also the people least responsible for it. In this context, Earths religious traditions are called to plumb their depths, seeking wellsprings of moral vision, hope, and wisdom for building ecologically sound and socially just ways of living. Christian traditions are rich with such resources.
One is the call to love neighbor as self, understood as not only an interpersonal vocation but also an ecological-economic vocation. Another is the call to heed Gods presence flowing and pouring through all things."
Registration includes Saturday lunch.
