St. Luke’s is celebrating the Season of Creation, which runs from September 1st through October 4th, in order to renew, repair, and restore our relationship to God, all creation, and to each other. As part of this celebration, Sarah Braik will facilitate a book discussion on Refugia Faith: Seeking Hidden Shelters, Ordinary Wonders, and the Healing of the Earth Monday nights at the Cathedral in the Chapter Room from 7-8:30 PM Mondays Sept. 12 and 26, Oct. 3, 10, 24, 31 and Nov. 7 and 14. Parishioners from St. Alban’s will be joining us.
Refugia Faith explores how Christian spirituality and practice must adapt to prepare for life on a climate-altered planet. Refugia is a biological term describing places of shelter where life endures in times of crisis, such as a volcanic eruption, fire, or stressed climate. We will learn how refugia emerge, endure, expand, and connect so that new life forms, and discuss how we ourselves and our churches can become sites of refugia. Go to your local bookshop or to Amazon and order your book now! For more information contact Sarah Braik or call 207-415-6556.
