LiVE Community Retreat: Spirit-Stirring & Creation Care
Saturday, April 1 at First Lutheran, Bothell 9am to 3pm; lunch included!
The call of the Spirit is to renew the face of the earth. This call comes with renewing our attention to creation as the very partner with whom God is bringing forth new life in this world. Far too long, many Christians have related to the land, and its ancestors, with domination and neglect. This day-long retreat focuses on how to restore dignity in relationship to creation, to rethink and practice faithfully a life of faith with creation at the center of our imaginations as local congregations. This retreat is a primer to the follow-up 5-week course in April and May with Deacon Jessica Zimmerle.
About the Faculty Facilitator: Sister Jessica Zimmerle has served as a community organizer in the faith-based environmental justice movement for 10 years, most recently as the Advocacy Director of Earth Ministry/Washington Interfaith Power & Light. She centers stories and values in her work supporting congregations living out their call to care for creation and mobilizing individuals taking action as faithful advocates on issues of environmental justice. Sister Jessica lives out this vocation as a Minister of Word and Service and member of the Deaconess Community of the ELCA.
