So here is the second sermon in my "Learning From Nature" series. The series will have to take a bit of a hiatus as we have Annual Meeting this Sunday. However, so far, I am enjoying it. I have decided to move slowly. Attendance is such that not everyone is in church every week and there are some key concepts here to help us consider how we can change how we relate to the natural world. I believe that most people--including myself--tend to believe that their (or our) connection to the natural world is closer than it is. This series is part of an effort to get us to think differently about our place in the ecosystem.
Another part of this process will include a couple forums--essentially one hour workshops after church--on March 3 and March 10 to think about the theology around this relationship. There will be a Pub Theology as well, riffing off the previous "Pub" when we talked about eco-anxiety. You are welcome to attend if you are around! IT is slow process to change our cultural norms and values. However, we won't ever manage it if we never start.
I am a full-time pastor in a small, progressive church in Massachusetts. This blog is about the non-church things I do to find spiritual sustenance.
