Working on environmental issues--caring for creation--can be difficult, lonely, and disheartening. As the daylight hours wane and the air carries a chill, many of our religious traditions guide us to reflect on themes of light and hope in the midst of darkness: Diwali, in the Hindu tradition; Hannukah, in the Jewish tradition; and Christmas, in the Christian tradition.
For our November conference call, we invite you to reflect on the seasonal theme of light and hope in the midst of darkness and difficulty--and to share what you find with others on the call. What gives you hope? What story helps inspire you to keep working, even when things look bleak? What poem offers you a vision of how things could or should be? What prayer offers you firm footing when all else seems uncertain? Please join us and share your stories, prayers, or a favorite poem.
As always, we will have some time for callers to ask questions, share ideas and connect.
