“Standing Up When Things Fall Apart” is a sermon for the First Sunday of Advent, delivered to Church of Reconciliation, San Antonio, Texas (November 28, 2021).
“… The Bible’s end-time passages and their frightening imagery of chaos and distress were not given to us so that we can indulge in wasteful and disheartening political rhetoric, in helplessness, resignation, or fatalism, but just the opposite: in order to sustain our courage, hope, and perseverance even in the midst of crisis.”


Margaret gave a plenary talk at the 2021 Global Mission Conference, “Earthkeeping: Creation Care in Global Mission,” hosted by the Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN), April 22-24, 2021. Her 30-minute presentation, “Earth Care, Soul Care: Growing in Spiritual Resilience,” is available on Global Episcopal Mission Network’s (GEMN) YouTube Channel.

All of the conference video recordings are available on the Global Episcopal Mission Network’s (GEMN) website. You can also watch the videos on GEMN’s YouTube 2021 Conference playlist.
