When the web of life is unraveling before our eyes, where do we find hope? What is hope, anyway? Is it merely a drug to soothe us when everything seems to be falling apart, or can it be something more robust? At an event hosted by The Spiritual Resilience Working Group (SRWG) of the Creation Care Committee (CCC) of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, Rev. Margaret will speak to diocesan clergy and faith leaders about Christian hope in a time of climate emergency and discuss some of the ways congregations can build hope through our prayer, preaching, and outreach.

With excitement we look forward to our big Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 20. Episcopalians across Massachusetts will gather at St. Mark’s Church, Southborough, for a special day of learning, sharing, worship, and renewed resolve. Come listen to celebrated ecologist and educator Robin Wall Kimmerer (author of Braiding Sweetgrass) speak in a video recorded just for us about reciprocity from a Native American perspective. Be inspired by internationally known author, environmentalist, and climate activist, Bill McKibben, speaking to us in a livestream. Enjoy the wisdom of Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-founder and co-director emeritus of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology, who, with her husband John Grim. created the academic field of ecology and religion and will be with us in person. At our closing Eucharist, be moved by the preaching of Bishop Carol Gallagher, a member of the Cherokee tribe and Assistant Bishop, Diocese of MA, and by the liturgical leadership of Bishop Doug Fisher, Diocesan, Diocese of Western MA. Join clergy and lay leaders as we celebrate completion of the pilot phase of An Episcopal Path to Creation Justice and build spiritual and moral power to respond to the climate crisis. Registration is open.  Suggested donation is $20, to cover lunch.  All are welcome! I hope to see you there!
