An Episcopal Vision for Creation Care

 

An Episcopal Vision for Creation Care

(From the Episcopal Church Website)

As a whole church, we have promised to place the care of God’s Creation at the heart of our common life. Together, we have taken up church-wide action in order to safeguard the integrity of Creation and to sustain and renew the life of the Earth.

Below are goals and a vision for Care of Creation, developed by the Presiding Bishop’s Office and leaders of the Advisory Council on Stewardship of Creation and in alignment with actions by the 79th General Convention.

Goal #1 – LOVING

We will share stories of concern for the Earth and connect with others who care.

Goal #2 – LIBERATING

We will stand with those most vulnerable to environmental degradation and climate change.

Goal #3 – LIFE-GIVING

We will change our habits and choices to live more simply, humbly and gently on the Earth.

Contemplative Group This Wednesday!

The Contemplative Group will meet Wednesday, October 2 at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room at Good Shepherd.  We begin with 20 minutes of contemplative prayer/meditation, followed by a teaching and discussion. This month we will begin a new series by Fr. Richard Rohr called Exploring and Experiencing The Naked Now – a program based on the main themes of his best-selling book. Contemplative seeing is the “lost treasure” from our Christian Tradition. This series opens Scripture to reveal the goal of religion.
