Listening to the Land (via Zoom)

She values the place names in the landscape that connect us to the language, history, and culture of the peoples who have lived there. She will share her work and how the power of poetry and song help tell our stories and connect us to the land.

Living Cosmology reflected in Pope Francis (via Zoom)

Our living creation story reveals the deep-time values of differentiation, interiority and communion. These universal dynamics provide a comprehensive context from which to reflect on our tradition’s evolving religious consciousness and teachings. In this light we will reflect on Pope Francis’ teachings, Laudato Si’ – On Care for Our Common Home and Fratelli Tutti – On Fraternity and Social Friendship.
