Join us on Thursday, February 17, 7:00 p.m. EST, for a presentation by teacher/author Joe Grant, who will address the topic, “Renew the Face of the Earth: Grounding Spirituality in Social and Ecological Crisis.”
Overview: In this era of upheaval, of climate collapse, mass extinction and waves of pandemic, we are also witnessing the ensuing disintegration of social and religious systems. This begs a radical shift in our relationship to life that reverences both the Source and the ground of our being. Listening to the urgent appeal of the land, reclaiming the ancient wisdom, we have started on a pathway toward truth and reconciliation that requires not merely the renewal of mind and heart, but also a new and steadfast Spirit.
