Sep 21st, 2022Shalom For All Creation

Join Wendy Janzen, MCEC Eco-Minister, for a half-day learning retreat. This will be an online session interspersed with two blocks of outdoors reflection time in your location. Teaching blocks will introduce tools for reading the Bible with an ecological lens and reading the ‘Book of Creation’ as a revelation of God, with opportunity to put these into practice. Have your Bible handy and bring a text you would like to work with (ie, sermon prep), wear your comfy clothes, and have a favourite beverage on hand to get into the retreat mindset.


This learning retreat will be offered again in October. They are designed so that you can participate in both or either. There will be some overlap of material, but the experiential elements, what you bring, and how God shows up in creation will be new each time.
