"Spiritual resilience in a climate emergency" In today’s Faith Forum we will reflect on climate anxiety and grief and how to stay spiritually strong in midst of the almost unimaginable losses and challenges that press upon us. How do we maintain energy and hope as we struggle to protect this beautiful, sacred creation? How does Christian faith restore our courage? Rev. Margaret will give a presentation at a (virtual) Faith Forum hosted by St. Paul's Cathedral in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego as we mark the Season of Creation. This event is free and open to the public. The Zoom link is here.

"Take heart, it is I”: An online retreat for Creation Season Led by the Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas Saturday, October 1, 2022 9:30 a.m.-12:00 noon • Online (free) Strong winds are blowing against us: the winds of white Christian nationalism, the winds of war, the winds of climate change. Like the disciples in their small boat, we may feel “battered by the waves” (Matthew 14:24).  Let’s gather to pray for the courage to meet Christ in rough seas, the serenity to trust in Christ’s presence, and the boldness to bear public witness to Christ’s love.  Our time together will include silence and guided meditation, presentations and small group conversation, and free time for solitary prayer and a contemplative walk outdoors. This online retreat will be held on the day that Faiths for Climate Justice launches 5 weeks of faith-based climate events (Oct. 1- Nov. 6). Please consider planning or joining an event, so that we can pray for you during our retreat. This retreat is sponsored by the two Episcopal dioceses in Massachusetts and by Southern New England Conference, UCC. Registration is open.

Rooted and Rising in Love: Fall Clergy Day

Episcopal Diocese of Long Island

Held on the Feast Day of St. Francis, this Clergy Day will invite us to reflect on our sources of courage and hope. In the face of converging social and ecological crises, what spiritual practices and perspectives will sustain us?  As we struggle to protect the web of life and to create a more just society, where do we find nourishment and strength?

This one-day retreat will include presentations, guided meditation, small and large group conversation, singing, worship, and time outdoors. Together we will explore a framework for the heart to help us become compassionate, prophetic leaders who can take up the mantle of moral leadership that this decisive moment in history requires.
