Join with others this summer and explore different faith tradition teachings about the environment. We’ll all read and discuss some “big picture” material and then dip into collected readings from the Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and Indigenous faiths. Together we’ll share our learnings and examine the relevancy of faith in addressing today’s environmental issues. Along the way we’ll each deepen our spirit-based view of creation.
