Sep 21st, 2022Shalom For All Creation - An Ecotheology Learning Retreat

Join Wendy Janzen, MCEC Eco-Minister, for a half-day ecotheology 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 retreat falls on the UN International Day of Peace and the Autumn Equinox and is a good way to celebrate either of them!
