The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have painfully reminded us about the impacts of human behaviour that break down natural systems and threaten the lives of so many species, including humans.  Restore Our Earth reminds us of the opportunity we have to restore relationship, to reconnect with Creation, and learn to live in right relationship with people and the earth.

Voices for Peace 2021 – Radical Hope, Radical Resistance 

Recovering our Roots in the Community of Creation with Sylvia Keesmaat 

7– 9PM

In advance of Earth Day, we will hear from organic farmer, biblical scholar, teacher, and author Sylvia Keesmaat. Sylvia will discuss Recovering our Roots in the Community of Creation. She asks, “What if radical hope and radical resistance meant recovering the deep relationality of Creator and creation? What if such resistance re-placed us in our true story – a story of healing that flows through God, creation, and ourselves?” 

Karri Munn-Venn of Citizens for Public Justicewill respond, linking us to events and actions from the For the Love of Creation Faith-in-Action campaign. 

NB: Please send inquiries regarding this event to [email protected].
